Compression Socks Help Reduce Spider & Varicose Veins

If you work at a hospital and find yourself standing for extended periods of time, there’s a good chance you’ve already developed symptoms of spider and varicose veins. When we stand for long periods of time, it allows our blood to pool, which can enlarge veins in our lower extremities. Recent studies have found compression socks to be extremely helpful in slowing down and relieving the symptoms of spider and varicose veins.

While your nurse scrubs may not be the most fashion-forward statement, compression socks come in a variety of patterns and colors! When it comes to your hospital’s sock policy, you likely have the freedom to jazz things up with fun and funky compression socks. Not only will your colorful socks look trendy and stylish, they’ll help improve your mood and boost your confidence by simply improving your body’s blood flow.

Compression Socks Regenerate Damaged Tissue

When nurses stand on their feet all day, their legs miss out on much-needed nutrients and oxygen. Since compression socks are specifically designed to help blood circulation, they can help regenerate damaged tissue in your legs and recover from injuries more quickly. For people suffering from leg ulcers, arthritis or Type 2 diabetes, compression socks can make all the difference.
