What Are Compression Socks?

Compression stockings are snug-fitting socks that apply gentle pressure to the legs and ankles. Average compression socks use graduated compression, making them tighter around the ankle with a looser fit up the leg.

The pressure in compression socks assists the blood vessels in your legs to promote blood flow back to the heart. The constant movement of blood reduces the chance of blood pooling in the veins and making a clot. This ability is why compression socks are often used to treat varicose/spider veins, deep vein thrombosis, or other circulation problems.

Athletes can also benefit from compression socks to improve blood flow and oxygen as they train. Compression socks can even help facilitate a quicker post-workout or competition recovery.

While these are the main uses for compression socks, they can be useful for preventative measures or for anyone sitting or standing for long periods.

Where to Buy Compression Socks

You can buy compression socks over the counter online or in many drugstores. A doctor can also prescribe compression stockings.

However, when purchasing compression socks over the counter, you will get generic, mass-produced options that might not fit the way they should. At MyoDynamic Health, we can provide custom fitted medical compression socks to ensure you get the support you need.


Medical-Grade Compression Socks

Medical-grade compression socks can come in several compression levels for adequate pressure. Our custom fitted compression socks offer graduated compression, being the tightest around the ankle (30mmHg) and decreasing intensity up the leg (20mmHg). You can choose from several colors to match your style.


Non-Medical-Grade Compression Socks

The primary difference between medical-grade and over-the-counter options is the compression levels, graduation levels (to bring blood flow back to the heart), and accuracy of a customized fit. MyoDynamic Health can also fit you for non-medical-grade compression sock options, providing pressure from 8-15mmHg to 15-20mmHg.
