Compression socks complimented as athletic aid
Compression socks could really help improve the wearers performance in sports and other athletic activities, it has been suggested.

Lee Nessel, writing for the Coloradoan, explained that the socks use graduated pressure to help encourage blood flow back to the heart and lungs.

This, he continued, means freshly oxygenated blood returns more speedily to the legs.

"Wearers described less muscle fatigue due to reduced vibration, less time needed for recovery, said the clothing aids circulation, keeps muscles warm [and] reduces leg pain," Mr Nessel stated.

Such socks were designed to help people with circulation problems, he added.

Compression Socks- such as those made by Levante- have been designed to relieve aching legs and to reduce swelling.

Graduated compression can help prevent blood remaining in the leg, which is a particular problem for people who have to remain standing or sitting for extended periods.
