Do You Suffer From Varicose or Spider Veins?
What are Varicose Veins? Essentially it’s a visible vein thats right under the surface of the skin. Usually on the legs and/or calf. Compression socks help reduce the symptoms and appearance associated with varicose veins.
Varicose veins will normally occur when the blood collects behind the tiny valves in a person veins instead of flowing back smoothly to the heart. This is more common in your lower extremities because it’s much farther for the blood to return to the heart. Doctors will often tell their patients to wear compression socks to help improve blood flow, reduce varicose veins, and limit discomfort.
A 2018 study, which found that wearing compression socks with pressures of 18 to 21 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) for 1 week helped to reduce aches and pain associated with varicose veins, compared to normal stockings. (Source)
