Is it OK to wear compression socks every day?
We usually recommend compression socks for people who suffer from plantar fasciitis or who want to prevent plantar fasciitis. Most people who wear compression socks find that they work best when used for long periods of time—including night shifts, travel, and sitting at a desk all day.
Is there a difference between medical compression socks and regular compression socks?
There is a difference between medical compression socks and regular socks. Medical socks are more effective in treating vascular conditions and preventing the formation of blood clots. They are always recommended by doctors and are very popular among people who are constantly on their feet.
How long should I wear a compression sock?
You should wear your compression stockings during the day and take them off before going to bed. Put them on again first thing in the morning. You should be given at least 2 stockings, or 2 pairs if you're wearing them on both legs. This means you can wear 1 stocking (or pair) while the other is being washed and dried.
Should I wear compression socks while walking?
Wearing compression socks while walking has been shown to have a number of benefits to reduce the risk of injury. The main aspect of a compression sock is that it provides an elastic, tight fit and moving around. Elasticity allows for greater movement and stability of the foot which reduces the potential for injury. The tight fit also reduces the blood flow to the lower extremities which can cause swelling, increased risk of injury and muscle cramping.
