Compression stockings were originally designed to relieve tired, swollen legs, and to treat a host of medical issues like varicose veins, edema, and phlebitis.

The garments enhance blood flow by encouraging the circulatory system to move blood from the lower legs back up to the heart.

Fact: compression wear provides extra support.

Some also say the firm, enveloping support that reduces vibration and friction of muscles and ligaments improves mechanical efficiency. Because of this, you may experience less muscle wear and tear during repeated impact with the ground. All Sigvaris products use the basic principle of true graduated compression with the strongest pressure at the ankle. When blood is properly circulated, it restores much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been deprived during a workout.

Of the compression levels available without a prescription, those designated 8-15 mmHg may not offer the snugger support of 15-20 mmHg socks prescribed for medical and athletic treatment.

Are you asking yourself why your legs often feel heavy and uncomfortable? Discomfort of the legs, like leg pain, heaviness, and/or leg tiredness, as well as swollen feet and ankles, can be first signs of venous disorder. Medical compression can help.
