Did You Know About Compression Stockings?

Did you know about compression stockings?

There are actually two different kinds. The gradient compression socks are used for different conditions, including lymphedema and blood pooling. The anti-embolism socks are used to aid in blood circulation and lymph fluid circulation. Athletes often wear compression socks to stabilize muscles and to aid in circulation and lactic acid removal.
