6 Reasons to Wear Your Compression Socks

Posted on March 04, 2024

While compression socks have never been considered the height of fashion, they can be important tools for managing vein health. However, not all garments work the same way. And, for that reason, it's important to see our vein specialists in Georgia to ensure that you receive the pair best suited for your medical needs.

Compression Socks by the Numbers

Prescription compression garments come in three main groups:

  1. Mild compression (about 15 – 20 mmHg). These garments are for daily wearing, and could help prevent clotting during long road trips or extended airplane flights.
  2. Moderate compression (about 20 – 30 mmHg). These garments may be for you if you have mild edema, varicose veins, or are recovering from surgery and need help improving your circulation.
  3. Strong compression (about 30 – 40 mmHg). These compression socks are designed for DVT treatment or serious edema.

Despite the important work they do, many patients don't wear compression garments as prescribed by our specialists in Georgia. So, why else should your rock your compression socks? Here are 6 important reasons to do just that!

Why You Should Rock Those Compression Socks

  1. Compression stockings push blood from your legs back to your heart, helping reduce many symptoms of vein disease, while reducing your risk for DVT.
  2. If you already have varicose veins, these garments can help prevent your condition from progressing, while keeping new troubled veins from forming.
  3. They boost blood flow, helping your body work more efficiently and even giving some patients boosts of increased energy!
  4. Compression socks can reverse the swelling you experience if you spend all day standing OR sitting. Get help for all day standing and sitting.
  5. They can even safely reverse heart failure symptoms, as this study recently revealed.
  6. Plus, today's compression stockings are actually cute, coming in a range of prints, patterns, colors and styles.

Remember, vein disease harms the appearance of your legs while hurting your overall health. But if you wear those compression socks, you can protect your health and still look great while doing so!
