  • 5 Signs Wearing Compression Stockings Could Benefit Your Leg Health
Compression stockings offer individuals many health benefits and can be worn to improve comfort, athletic performance, and prevent serious medical conditions. Whether it’s following a varicose vein treatment, or to relieve pressure in your legs, here are 5 reasons why you might consider wearing compression stockings. 

Compression stockings are a special type of elastic stocking that work to support healthy blood circulation in the leg and prevent a range of issues, such as spider or varicose veins. If you already suffer from varicose veins, then compression stocks can alleviate symptoms such as: 

  • Restless legs 
  • Night cramps
  • Pain or fatigue in legs 
  • Swollen feet and ankles
  • Heavy or aching limbs 

In addition to providing relief to patients before and after varicose vein treatment, compression stockings can provide health benefits to patients who often travel on long haul flights and whose jobs require prolonged standing/sitting.

5 Reasons Why You May Consider Wearing Compression Stockings 

While you may have thought that compression stockings should only be worn after varicose vein treatment, the truth is that individuals opt to wear these for a number of other reasons. 

Here are 5 reasons why you may want to consider wearing compression stockings: 

  1. Your job requires you to sit for long hours: When you are sitting for prolonged periods of time, such as at work, the inactivity of your calf muscles makes natural circulation less efficient. This can result in fatigue, blood pooling, or swelling in your lower legs, all of which can be eased by wearing compression stockings. 

  2. You stand all day at work: Similar to sitting for prolonged periods of time, if you stand for long durations, your calf muscles aren’t active and it will impact your natural circulation. This is why many retail workers, cashiers, or trade workers are great candidates for compression stockings, as they can help them feel less fatigued and more energized at the end of a workday.

  3. You travel long distances: If you travel for prolonged periods frequently, whether it’s by plane, train, car, or bus, you are at risk for developing blood clots or deep vein thrombosis. Wearing a compression stocking can help prevent this and minimize any swelling. 

  4. You exercise: While compression stockings won’t help you lift more weights or run faster, studies have shown that wearing them following a workout can help reduce muscle soreness and speed up recovery. (Everything You Need to Know About Compression Stockings >)

  5. You want to prevent certain circulation-related problems: The main reason why a physician will recommend compression stockings to an individual is if he/she has spider veins, varicose veins, pregnancy related edema, or post-surgical leg edema. These medical grade stockings will put the right amount of pressure on your legs, helping the veins function properly.
