A new report has been released by Physix, the leading online distributor of sports and wellness accessories, discussing the difference between compression socks. The report goes into great detail about the two main types of compression socks: calf compression and full-length compression.
The release of this report is designed to give online shoppers the information needed to make an intelligent decision between calf compression sleeves and full-length compression socks. Both are useful for keeping muscles warm prior to activities and increasing blood flow during and after activities. However, there are some significant differences that one should be aware of before purchasing a pair of compression socks.
This newly-released report shares that compression socks are typically made of light-weight materials such as nylon, lycra, or spandex, which are all stretchy, strong and durable . The release emphasizes that calf compression sleeves cover the lower leg, just below the knee down to the ankle, while full-length compression socks cover the entire lower leg from knee to toe.
Compression socks have a variety of uses including providing relief when one works on their feet for long hours, doing a workout or playing sports that are focused on the calves and legs. They can also be worn under a doctor’s orders if there are medical issues or injuries to the legs or veins within the legs. Both calf compression sleeves and full-length compression socks provide great options for relief from pain and swelling.
The release further reports that calf compression sleeves allow one to wear regular socks and shoes with them, as opposed to full-length compression socks, and so are more versatile. Calf compression sleeves come in several sizes which are based on circumference and length.
The release of this report brings the information needed by those who suffer from swollen feet so that one can avoid blood pooling in the leg veins. In this regard it recommends that anyone who sits for long periods of time should wear compression socks.
This release is geared to help anyone considering the purchase of compression socks.
