Medical Grade Compression Stockings and Socks

Compression stockings help improve blood circulation from the legs and feet back to the heart by gently squeezing the veins and muscles of the leg to help reduce swelling in the legs and feet.

Compression is firmest at the ankle and gradually reduces higher up the leg. The stockings also help move fluid up the leg so it doesn’t collect around the ankle.

When should you wear compression stockings?

Compression stockings are typically worn by individuals who have poor blood circulation, or who tend to experience swollen or aching legs.

In addition, compression stockings can be beneficial for those recovering from injuries or surgery, as the tight fit helps to keep the limbs compressed and speeds up healing. Generally speaking, compression stockings should be worn during periods of extended sitting or standing, such as during long car rides, flights or work shifts.

However, it is important to consult your doctor before wearing compression stockings, especially if you have any medical conditions that might be impacted by their use. Finally, as compression stockings are often made from medical-grade materials like spandex and nylon, it is important to only wear them when recommended by a healthcare professional and to follow any specific washing instructions given with the garment.

In Australia and other countries around the world, compression socks are widely used due to their many health benefits. So whether you're experiencing sore or swollen legs after a workout or trying to speed up recovery after an injury, compression socks may be just what you need.

What is the purpose of compressions socks?

Compression stockings and socks are specialised garments that are designed to apply pressure to the legs.

The compression is tightest at the ankle, and gradually decreases up the leg. This graduated compression helps to improve blood flow and reduce swelling.

Compression stockings and socks are available in a variety of styles, and can be purchased over-the-counter or with a prescription to a health professional.

In Australia, compression stockings and socks must be medical grade in order to be effective.

Over-the-counter garments may provide some level of compression, but they are not as effective as medical grade compression stockings and socks.

What are the benefits of wearing compression stockings?

Compression stockings are a tool used by both athletes and medical professionals to help improve circulation and relieve muscle pain.

Made from a high-quality, medical grade fabric, compression stockings apply pressure to the parts of the legs most susceptible to compression. This compression stimulates blood flow and promotes healing, helping to reduce inflammation, flush metabolic waste from the body, and speed recovery time.

In addition, they can also be beneficial for people with varicose veins or other leg-related conditions. Whether you are an athlete seeking extra support during intense training sessions or need relief after a long day on your feet, compression stockings can be a valuable tool to improve your health and well-being.

In Australia and many other countries around the world, compression socks are quickly gaining in popularity as more people discover their numerous benefits.

So if you want to feel better and boost your performance both on and off the field, why not give compression stockings a try?
