The Main Squeeze
No matter your age or energy level, all of your systems can benefit from a little help now and then. Take your circulatory system for example. The work it does is pretty amazing—our heart pumps blood all around our body, delivery oxygen and keeping us healthy. Our muscles help pump the blood back so it can re-oxygenate and make the trip all over again. But sometimes, due to gravity, our legs need a little extra help to keep up the flow.
That’s when it’s time to roll on the compression socks. The tight 2-way stretch helps put pressure right where you need it, and stimulates the muscles, aiding in circulation. Just a little extra compression gets the blood flowing all the way through your legs, down to the toes, and back up to the heart again.
Anyone can benefit from better circulation, but if you suffer from pain and heaviness in your feet, leg cramps or spasms, or restless leg syndrome, compression socks might be the relief you need. They are also especially helpful for pregnant women, athletes and runners, or those that work long hours on their feet. A little help never hurts!
