Graduated compression socks help your body return blood and fluid from your lower limbs back up to your heart. They work with the natural pumping motion of your calves and increase blood flow and oxygen delivery in your veins. They protect your legs from muscle vibration and improve endurance while minimizing recovery time. They are also an effective tool for the management and prevention of varicose veins and venous insufficiency.
Dr. Holly Beckley is excited to offer a selection of styles and designs to suit your needs. Black, white and beige are available, but for some fun, how about these ones from Lunatik Athletics?!
Who Can Benefit from Compression?
travelers (travel causes reduced blood circulation within the legs, especially when movement is restricted)
athletes, or those who train like them (increased oxygen and blood flow with less muscle vibration during activity for improved endurance, helps in removal of lactic acid following activity to reduce soreness and cramping)
pregnant women (preventing onset and/or worsening of varicose veins, helps alleviate minor swelling pre and postnatally, reduces risk of thrombosis)
people who spend a lot of time standing or sitting (prevention of fatigue, achiness, minor swelling, reduction in risk of thrombosis)
individuals with spider and/or varicose veins
individuals with swelling in their feet or lower legs
anyone who suffers from tired, achy, heavy legs
