Good circulation is important for our overall health. If you travel, sit or stand at work all day, or have been diagnosed with conditions such as varicose veins, DVT, CVI, or lymphedema, you may benefit from compression socks and stockings.
Compression socks, along with a good pair of shoes, can change how a nurse feels throughout his or her day.
After working a 12 hour shift on your feet, swelling and pain is almost guaranteed. While compression has certain medical benefits like helping to prevent varicose veins, or dealing with Lymphedema etc. compression stockings can make an incredible difference to those who don’t have these symptoms or venous diseases.
If you've noticed small, dilated red or purple veins on your legs or ankles, you've probably got telangiectasia, better known as spider veins.
