Guest article by Kinetic Konnection’s Rob Pula

The number one question I get about compression socks when I talk about poor leg health is “do they really work?”

The answer I give is ‘YES’. I do not wear them because I suffer from sore, tired achy legs. Actually my legs are healthy and I try to be active as possible. But my job does require me to sit for periods of time and I am avoiding or preventing the tired, achy and sore legs.

I wear the socks about 3 to 5 days out of the week while at work. I wear them when I travel and I also wear for recovery after a long run or bike ride.

When I do not wear them for 2 to 3 days consecutively I notice a difference. My legs feel heavy and sluggish and I look forward to putting them on.

Prevention of anything is better than reacting and usually with better results. I am not saying that you should wear a brace in case you sprain an ankle or wrist but if you sit or stand for prolonged periods of time, are pregnant, travel or have a pre-existing venous (vein) condition then speak to your doctor about the use of compression socks.

You might be pleasantly surprised. Read this blog about my business partners dining experience and a conversation he had with the waitress.

Feel free to email me [email protected] about any questions you may have about compression socks.
