Why Compression Socks for Women?

Women face a lot of physical demands on a daily basis. Whether it’s exercise-related injuries or soreness, or conditions like heart disease, anemia, and Raynaud’s Syndrome, women can face a variety of physical demands that make their feet hurt. However, compression socks are an easy-to-use tool for women to use in order to keep up with their busy lives, without compromising movement or comfort.

Living an Active Lifestyle

Many women strive to live an active lifestyle and take care of their bodies by exercising in a variety of ways. Women are hitting the gym, running, and are participating in sports more and more to stay in shape. In fact, women’s interest in soccer has been growing so rapidly that the international governing body for it, FIFA, will be adding 8 more women’s soccer teams by 2023. Whether it’s soccer, tennis, softball, basketball, volleyball or any other sport that requires you to be nimble on your toes, compression socks can keep you in the game. Running, sliding, jumping, and kicking all rely on your leg and ankle muscles and it’s those crucial active moments that can win the game or end your career. 

One of the most common injuries in active women across the board is a sprained ankle. Compression socks can help you avoid these painful twists by providing ankle support, without getting in the way of how you play. Since compression socks push on your foot and ankle evenly, they can keep your muscles maneuvering together during quick plays or lost footing to preserve muscle health and lower your risk for sprains, muscle tears, twists, and rolls. They can also be used to treat injuries like this as they fight swelling and add support to reduce pain and inflammation. However you move, compression socks designed to move with you.

Combating Poor Circulation in Women

Women are at risk for many circulatory issues and diseases because they’re more vulnerable to major heart stressors like pregnancy, anemia, and Raynaud’s Syndrome. This extra stress on the heart can weaken it over time, so things like medical-grade compression socks, regular exercise, eating healthy, and staying hydrated can make all the difference for keeping you healthy and on the go.

It’s your heart’s job to pump blood all the way around your body, women’s compression socks make that job easier by increasing circulation. They also help fight stressors such as injury and swelling by holding your muscles in place. The even pressure from compression socks encourages your muscles to stay in alignment. This helps protect against injury and promote healthy, natural movement. 

Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time of excitement and anticipation for most women, but it does come with some heart-related side effects. Legs swell and cramp, joints hurt, and dizziness seems to be lurking around every corner. This is because pregnancy presents circulatory issues and added stress to the body. Luckily, pregnancy socks can help you find relief from these common symptoms so that you can keep up with your daily life and feel more comfortable while doing it.

Heart Disease

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, affecting 1 in 4. Heart disease is somewhat of an umbrella term that includes coronary artery disease, heart failures, and strokes to name a few. Compression socks can be used as a preventative tool to keep your heart strong and healthy. These heart-healthy socks increase circulation, making it easier for your heart to pump blood, increasing your heart rate and taking stress off this vital organ.

Anemia

Anemia is a condition where your body does not have enough red blood cells to get the right amount of nutrients circulated through to your major organs. Women tend to lose red blood cells and iron at higher rates and more regularly due to menstruation, which can lead to iron deficiencies and ultimately, anemia. This condition can slow you down because it causes fatigue, cold hands and feet, and lightheadedness. By helping the red blood cells reach the right areas, compression socks can reduce some of the symptoms associated with anemia so that you can stay on the go while seeking treatment for its underlying causes.

Raynaud’s Syndrome 

Women living in cold climates are susceptible to Raynaud’s Syndrome, a condition where the blood vessels in the hands and feet constrict and blood flow to the toes and fingers is then weakened or stopped altogether. Women are more likely to suffer from this condition than men, with cold weather, genetics, or stress causing it. With this condition, it’s all about giving yourself the proper self-care to feel better. Since this condition restricts blood flow, it causes hands, feet, and even the tip of your nose to feel cold. In addition, to dressing warmer, wearing compression socks is recommended. The added circulation benefits from compression socks keep blood pumping to treat and prevent these annoying symptoms from occurring.
