What are the benefits of compression socks?

Most people probably think long hospital stays when they hear the words compression socks. However there are many other times compression socks are beneficial to wear. Compression socks will:

  • reduce swelling in your feet
  • improve circulation
  • help with varicose veins
  • reduce blood clot formation

Anyone who sits or stands for long periods of times, exercises often, travels, or is going through recovery would likely benefit from wearing compression socks. The reduction in swelling, throbbing, and pain in the feet will be noticeable on day one.

Sockwell is one of the top brands in compression socks. Sockwell has both men and women lines of compression socks. Sockwell produces two levels of compression, each with specific benefits. The moderate compression, 15-20 mmHg, is going to help if you have wide calves. The firm compression, which is 20-30 mmHg, helps with severe varicosities. Sockwell provides arch support to adapt to every foot, helping to minimize swelling.

Sockwell socks are constructed of fine American Merino wool-based yarns such as, Cashmerino and Bamboo, or Lamb’s wool and Alpaca blends. These blends combine focus on durability, natural thermoregulation, moisture management and softness. Sockwell compression socks come in many different styles, colors, and patterns.

Another great compression sock brand is Pro compression. Some benefits to pro compression are: 

  • two stabilization zones within the compression sock to ensure they will stay put when you move
  • made of polynylon, moisture wicking fabric to keep sweat away from your skin
  • Easy to get on and off
  • Cushioned padding under the foot
  • Many different designs to choose from
