What are the uses and benefits of sport compression socks and stockings?

What is it for?

  • Swelling: when there is a problem with venous return or an injury to the soft tissues of the feet and ankles, the legs swell and compression socks allow blood to better circulate up the body to avoid swelling in the lower extremities. It is recommended to wear the socks all day as long as there is relief for the wearer.
  • Acute or chronic pain: compression socks help relax the muscles and other soft tissues in the legs, whether due to sports, injuries or diseases that alter the patient’s circulatory system. These garments are an excellent aid in relieving pain.
  • Muscle contractures: when a contracture occurs, the fibers are grouped irregularly and the circulation of blood flow is altered. Because stockings compress the vessels that hold the blood, they allow it to flow better through the bloodstream and promote muscle relaxation. Stockings are great if you are looking to support recovery from minor muscle injuries.
  • Muscle cramps: Cramps are small, involuntary contractions that occur after a hard workout when the muscle is exhausted. Compressive stockings work to prevent this exhaustion, it is advisable to use them in training and when you know that at home or work you will make an effort to which you are not used to and for which you are not physically ready.
  • Muscle strain: these garments keep tissues such as tendons and ligaments in place. They help to protect the joints in case of slight sprains and generate a sense of security to the person that also has a contraindication, when the stockings serve as a placebo and its effect is only psychological. A dependence on them should be avoided.
  • Fiber breakage: as a recovery tool, these socks are special because they help people with some deficiencies. In this case, the deficiency is the alteration in muscle functioning, that is why the compressive socks provide a greater amount of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged muscle fibers.

Compression stockings are used to help maintain the patient’s daily activity as long as he/she is in constant movement. It is not recommended to sleep with them.
  • Muscle overload injuries: all physical activity and sports in excess, leaves fatigue and tiredness in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Stockings relax tense tissues by dilating blood vessels to carry more nutrients and facilitate the regeneration of damaged cells. In case of muscle recovery, they have better positive effects.
  • Contusions and trauma: these garments protect people and athletes from falls, blows and scratches. There are stockings that cover the entire leg, reaching the hip, so that in addition to having a pain-relieving effect, they also provide protection to the skin and prevent bruises, edema and minor open wounds on the skin.
  • Leg weakness: the more blood circulation, the more nutrients the muscles will have and the stronger they will be. This sensation is felt by people who are already adapted to a rational use of compression socks, because they feel secure and comfortable in the use of these elastic materials.
