Full-time workers in office environments have it tough. Not only are their jobs stressful and their hours long, but they typically must spend most of their waking lives seated at a desk. A sedentary lifestyle is a serious health risk that's affecting office employees in greater and greater numbers, but compression socks and stockings can serve as an excellent circulation booster to help maintain healthy venous systems and promote a normal blood flow.
Circulation booster socks use strong elastics to apply mild to very firm pressure to the arteries, veins and muscle tissue of the lower legs. This pressure helps prevent blood from pooling in the feet and ankles, which can result from prolonged periods of inactive sitting. These socks can be used by patients with varicose veins and spider veins, so they also offer the cosmetic benefit of addressing unsightly blue marks and bulges.
Leg compression garments come in a wide range of colours, styles and lengths. Circulation booster hosiery fits tightly against the leg, so it's easy to conceal under pants and pantyhose. In fact, compression pantyhose are also available. If you've noticed signs of unhealthy veins and arteries in your legs, ask your doctor if these garments are right for you.
