Northern Kentucky Medical Supply Specialists Says:

 “Compression Socks – Not Just For Varicose Veins!”


Compression Socks are one of the hottest selling items among the Northern Kentucky Medical Supply industry. They are no longer just for treating varicose veins, diabetic issues, Restless Leg Syndrome and other medical conditions. In today’s health conscious society, for everyone from pregnant women to the pro athlete, compression socks are becoming a part of the everyday wardrobe.


Still wondering how compression socks work? This may help it make sense: compression socks use graduated compression in its design. Because of this, the varying degrees of tightness along the length of the sock allows blood flow to improve. The compression decreases as the sock goes up the leg. This allows for better circulation that doesn’t get pinched off by the tightness of the compression sock.

The pressure these stockings put on your legs helps your blood vessels to function better, increasing oxygen and blood flow. The arteries then take oxygen-rich blood to your muscles allowing them to relax, so blood flows freely. The veins then get a boost pushing blood back to your heart.

Whether prescribed by a physician for medical needs, you need them for your next big travel event to reduce swelling, or you want to make them a part of your healthy life style, compression socks can certainly benefit many people in many ways.
