What are Compression Socks?

Compression Socks

Compression socks are more than just a cure for varicose veins and swollen ankles. Athletes in almost every sport, including gold medal Olympians, have discovered the benefits of wearing compresion socks while competing and post-workout.

During competition, compression socks and calf sleeves:
 

  1. Stabilize leg muscles, eliminaing cramps

  2. Increase blood flow and muscle oxygenation, which increases endurance

  3. Decrease chance of injury, like torn muscles & inflammation

Wearing compression socks post-workout helps flush lactic acid (an acid that naturally forms in the body during exercise) from the muscles, which means less ache and a quicker recovery. Then you're ready to get up and do it all over again!
