Given that 40% of men will develop venous disorder at some point in their lives, compression hosiery should be used as a preventative measure by many people. At risk people include those who have family members with venous disorders, or who stand up at work. Because circulation in the legs is increased immediately, compression hosiery has immediate benefits. Compression socks for men quickly relieves the pain and swelling associated with venous disorders, while at the same time preventing more serious problems, such as blood clots in the deep veins.
The most important thing to remember about compression garments is to wear them everyday. Wearing your compression garments will deliver the therapy your physician or healthcare provider recommends. It’s a habit worth starting.
Moderate Compression (15-20 mmHg)
Gradient compression delivers a squeezing to the leg that is tightest at the ankle. The degree of squeezing or compression gradually decreases up the leg. This compression, generally expressed in mmHg (millimeters of mercury).
