What are Medical Compression Socks?

Medical compression socks act to improve circulation from the lower limb back to the central circulation. The veins can become damaged over years of static positions either sitting or standing which lead to damage or weakness of the valves in the veins. Insufficient blood flow can lead to a number of problems.

  • Tired and achy legs
  • Light headed or dizziness when standing
  • Spider or varicose veins
  • Swollen feet and ankles

There are many benefits of medical compression socks because they are made with gradient of pressure, resulting in a gentle squeezing action that creates better circulation. The goal is to reduce swelling and leg pain, reduce pressure on the veins. You will need to get a script from your doctor, and then we can consult with you to provide a custom measure.
