With autumn right around the corner those toasty compression socks are looking more and more comfy by the day. If you didn’t want to wear compression socks in the summer, today is the day to reap the benefits of this health-boosting footwear. Now is the time to look at leg health, and with a brand new pair of compression socks, taking total control over your lower extremities is easier than it ever has been before. Just ask your Chiropodist!

Varicose Veins

Tired achy legs

Compression socks work from a simple premise: they promote blood circulation and increase oxygen delivery to your muscles. The reason our body feels tired during and after exercise is because of the buildup of lactic acid, which is produced as a byproduct of oxidation during running, walking, biking, or any other form of intense physical activity. By getting more oxygen to your muscles faster, the increase in lactic acid is slowed meaning you can keep working at peak performance for longer, without feeling worn out.

Varicose veins

As we age, varicose veins become a more and more significant problem. It’s something many of us deal with, and because of how common the problem is, better solutions are being developed every day to manage it. By promoting circulatory health and strengthening your lower extremities, compression socks can help treat varicose veins, alongside a whole range of other ailments. Sure, you are probably not going to be busting out the shorts until next summer, but why not get a head start on making your legs look great?

Getting active

A sedentary life can cause leg cramps, aches and pains, lethargy, depression, and a whole host of problematic conditions which can really put a damper on your life. Compression socks allow millions of people across the world to experience and active, healthy lifestyle by boosting their body’s natural blood circulation and improving overall health. With better physical fitness habits factored in, the health benefits are compounded, meaning you can see an improvement in your mood and general well-being in a matter of days. It has turned so many people’s lives around, why not give it a try for yourself?
