    This is a great article on compression socks. I used to use them a lot when I played basketball and noticed that they helped to prevent cramps and muscle exhaustion in comparison to how my calves responded to prolonged activity without them.

    They are, indeed, safe and I understand the hard science behind their graduated compressions to promote blood flow. I have liked them for this purpose, and your post makes me want to find mine and get them back into use.

    Thanks!

      Hi Tucker and thank you.

      It is good the article remembered you on the importance of the running socks.

      Have in mind too that shoes have a lot of significant factors, but these factors need running socks so you can have the benefit of them. For example:
      The survey of sprinters shows that 43% are later or with hardness in muscles for the first 24 hours after exercise if they use special pressure relief. Runners who use knee-high compression socks when running on a runway ran an average of 6% faster than those who walked in regular socks.

      And about the running shoes. Running socks will wick away, and naturally, absorb some of the moisture that is generated when you run. If you do not wear socks, then your sweat will go straight into your shoe and soak into the fabric. While washing socks is reasonably straightforward, washing your trainers is less so. They will develop a bad odor very quickly if you do not wear socks.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Having been a runner of 10K’s and half marathons it has been interesting to see the compression sock become more and more popular. I must admit I have not worn them myself but that said I do get a numbness in my foot sometimes owing to lack of circulation could it be time to try out these compression socks. What’s your advice ?

      Hi, Martin Burt and thank you.

      In my opinion, it is no question to try it. People use these socks for much more than running because of the blood circulation, for example in long travel and work.

      I know a lot of people who have found a difference when they start using it. And when you run or walk it is important to use the tools you have to improve blood circulation on the legs.

    My first thought was what is the effect of prolonged and continued use as a runner with the compression socks you recommend?Does method cause any part of the anatomy to become lazy and thus not function as well as it would have without the compression socks?Thinking about all the dynamics and scenarios of what these compression socks could bring about from the troubleshooting you mention, makes me very cautious as to taking the first step to use them.Are these compression socks best just prescribed by a doctor and adhering to the prescribed usage?Looking forward to your soonest reply.

      Hi, LearnToEarn Admin and thank you.

      No, you don´t need to be worried about that. You don´t need to get anything from doctors to get these socks. And too, this is to help the body, but it has nothing to do with a function on it.

      Except if you have a severe vascular disease I would not use I would not use it before I have talked with a doctor. And of course, it is always good to speak with doctors and do things in cooperation with him.

Besides the health benefits they look good physically and add color to athletes outfits.

    Great post about compression socks, I do wear this particular socks at night too but pressure applied to one’s ankle and calf during the night can cut circulation off. Now, some people do need to wear compression socks at night because of health issues or post-surgery. Even in these instances, you should only be wearing the lowest compression available.

      Hi, Ayodeji and thank you.

      Yes, many people do it. Like I have said before, these socks help a lot of people in more places than when they are running. Traveling and works when you need to stand a lot is an example of it.
