Benefits of Wearing Compression Socks

Who can benefit from compression socks?

Traditionally compression socks are known to benefit nurses, doctors, flight attendants, runners, pilots, pre and post-operative patients and anybody at risk of developing blood clots in their legs.  Now looking a little deeper into the traditional usage, the benefits of a quality graduated compression sock extend to anyone who spends considerable time sitting or standing.  In our production warehouse, staff have reported feeling notably better at the end of their 8 hour shifts.  

What are the benefits of wearing compression socks?

Compression socks promote circulation, reduce fatigue and minimise swelling.  This is achieved by applying pressure (compression) to the foot and calf in an effort to promote blood flow.
