Can compression socks help with my excercise/sports?

Ask An Insider

Compression garments and socks offer support to the blood flow in our veins. Unlike arteries, veins do not have muscles built in, so as they bring the blood back to our heart, they rely on external muscles and valves inside to prevent blood back flow and clotting.

Compression garments acts like an extra layer of external muscle that pushes blood flow upwards and prevents back flow at the same time. With an improved circulation, muscle functions improve, as a result, you can warm up faster and for amateur athletes performance can be improved up to 30%.

In addition to improved athletic performance, compression garments also prevent injuries and improve recovery time. The added support prevents muscle vibration and reduces risk of injury during exercise.

Make sure you see our certified fitters to find the best fit for you.
