How does it Work?
Compression socks therapy is often overlooked. Whether you require strong medical compression or mild/moderate compression, let our professionals educate you on how they can benefit you. The human body is designed to pump blood from your heart to your entire body then back to your heart. When the blood flow reaches your legs, it has a harder time coming back up into your upper body. Compression socks are carefully designed to aid the blood flow out of the lower extremities and back to the heart.
Worn before and after exercise, compression socks aid in the removal of lactic acid from muscle tissue to reduce aching and cramping. They help increase blood circulation and enhance oxygen delivery to muscles and tissues during physical activity. By stabilizing and lowering vibration of active muscles, the promote faster rejuvenation.
