The Most Frequently Asked Questions About Compression Stockings. Know Everything Now!
How do compression stockings work? The pressure that compression stockings exert on your legs helps your blood vessels to work better. Thanks to the pressure, the veins get a boost that pushes the blood back towards your heart. In this way, "old", oxygen-poor blood is drained faster from the (lower) legs, making way for "new" oxygen-rich blood. New, oxygen-rich blood ensures that muscles are less damaged during exercise. Which means that injuries are prevented. In addition, fatigue and leg pain are also prevented. Swelling in the feet and lower legs are also often caused by moisture remaining in it. Thanks to compression stockings, this moisture is also more easily removed.
