Why Do People Need Compression Apparel?

There are many reasons why someone may need compression garments to help with comfort. These may include something as simple as tired legs and feet, especially if you stand or sit for long periods of time. They can target the discomfort caused by varicose veins, the enlarged and swollen veins some get when the valves that push blood through the body are weak or damaged. Post-partum women can also use compression garments to reduce pain and speed up the healing process, especially after a caesarian section.

 

Types of Compression Apparel

There are many types of compression apparel that target different parts of the body. The overall goal is to increase blood flow and minimize the swelling experienced after an injury. In some cases, they can even help prevent injuries!

Compression Socks and Stockings

These products can lessen pain and swelling in your legs experienced with physical activity. They can also lower your chances of getting deep vein thrombosis, a type of blood clot, and other circulation issues. These are particularly helpful for those with jobs that require sitting or standing for extended periods of time including office workers, truck drivers, pilots, and flight attendants.

Compression Sleeves

Just like socks and stockings, compression sleeves minimize pain and swelling in the arms experienced by some people during exercise or daily activities.

Compression Knee Support

For those recovering from a knee injury, compression knee support is a great way to keep everything in place and take strain off of the knee joint.

Compression Gloves

If you have experienced a hand injury or have arthritis, a compression glove may help increase blood flow and decrease swelling.

Compression Undergarments

Though most may think of shapewear, and it can be used for this purpose, compression undergarments help keep everything in place. They aid in post-surgery recovery and everyday comfort.
