Check out our site for some of the options http://www.allaboutcompression.com/13-athletic or call us for more toll free 855-835-3544.

Should EVERYONE Wear Compression Stockings?

Graduated compression stockings/socks would be beneficial for you if…

1) You Travel

2) Are pregnant

3) Have history of blood clots

4) Suffer from varicose veins

5) Battle swelling in your ankles and/or feet

6) Have diabetes

and/or

7) have lymphedema

If you fall into any of these categories, graduated compression stockings would help you. They increase circulation and help pump the blood back up towards your heart like your veins are supposed to do. Graduated compression socks/stockings help reduce swelling in your feet and ankles, prevent blood clots, and slow the progression of varicose veins.

So, the answer is yes. Everyone, at some point in their lives, would benefit from graduated compression stockings.

The best part is…they come in hundreds of colors and styles now, so they don’t have to look like compression stockings. Check out our store online for all the options http://www.allaboutcompression.com/
