Compression hosiery is a term that describes socks, stockings, and sleeves that are specially designed for compression therapy. Compression hosiery applies gentle pressure on your feet, ankles, legs, wrists, or arms, promoting blood flow from your extremities to your heart.
Compression hosiery can help reduce pain and swelling in your legs and arms, and they can help those suffering from circulation problems live comfortable lives.
Compression hosiery applies pressure on your extremities, which may help your blood flow up toward the heart. The pressure put on your extremities enables your arteries to relax when transporting blood to the muscles and your veins to get a boost when pushing blood back to the heart.
The compression hosiery helps keep your blood moving, so it’s harder for it to pool in your extremities, where it can clot. Clots make it harder for blood to move around them, which can cause swelling, discolored skin, and other health problems.
Compression hosiery can ease swelling in your extremities and joints, and may help prevent and treat varicose veins. Wearing compression hosiery may also prevent you from feeling light-headed or dizzy when after standing up.
Some professional athletes, including basketball players, runners, triathletes, and others, wear compression hosiery in competitions. Due to the fact that compression hosiery can help improve blood circulation, it can help their muscles receive oxygenated blood faster and it can speed up their muscle recovery.
