Compression or pressure socks are no longer just for patients, the elderly, or pregnant people. By improving blood circulation, they offer several medical benefits that can be helpful for all kinds of people.
Whether you require socks for exercise, health, travel, or casual everyday use, we have everything to suit all your compression needs at TXG Socks. You can browse our selection of graduated compression socks for men and women in Australia here.
Compression Socks as An Underutilised Tool for Health
The purpose of pressure socks is to improve blood flow in the legs, which in turn, offers a variety of health benefits such as increased recovery and injury prevention.
Compared to standard socks, compression types squeeze the lower legs more. It may be a subtle difference but this constrictive, snug-fitting feature works wonders in improving health — which many people don't realise and take advantage of yet. Because of the increased pressure, healthcare providers also typically recommend compression socks to relieve the symptoms of certain conditions, like varicose veins and blood clotting.
Choosing the Right Compression Level
One factor to consider when choosing compression stockings is the tightness or level of pressure, measured in mmHg. At TXG, we offer three levels of graduated compression for our products: Mild, Moderate, and Firm. The mild level is ideal for beginners and enough to keep you comfortable for long hours. To help prevent DVT, blood clotting, swelling, or varicosities, you may want to consider moderate to firm pressure levels.
