compression socks for work

Most jobs involve us sitting for hours which can lead to leg problems. Keeping healthy should be your top priority! Here are three healthy reasons why you should think about wearing compression socks at work.

1. You've heard it all too often, sitting for long hours day in, day out isn't good for your health. It results in leg swelling, may cause deep vein thrombosis (DVT), muscle weakness and poor blood circulation. To understand this on a deeper level, read this

Not to worry because compression socks and stockings are great at preventing all these symptoms!

2. Compression socks are tightest around the ankles to push blood back up to the heart, aiding in blood circulation. This will help you stay more alert at work and not get distracted by heavy, restless legs.

3. Do you have varicose veins or want to prevent them from forming due to prolonged sitting or standing? Not only are varicose veins unsightly, they are also an indication of expanded and weak veins. This means blood isn't flowing effectively and compression socks help by constricting veins to help with blood flow, preventing the formation of varicose veins or preventing existing ones from getting worse.
