Who needs compression socks?
While it’s true that compression socks are primarily prescribed for patients with a history of diabetes they can provide exceptional pain relief and other medical benefits for a variety of others including:
- Those who are standing for long periods
- PSWs, Nurses, flight attendants and passengers etc
- Pregnant women
- Gym enthusiast and athletes
At Sole Pulse we provide consultation and fittings for individuals needing compression socks as the amount of compression provided by a pair of socks will vary. All compression socks are not created equal and provide varying levels of compression from mild (15-20mmHg) to firm (30- 40mmHg) compression.
During a consultation a foot care nurse will advise on the level of compression a patient needs, as well as measure your leg to make sure you are fitted in a proper compression sock/stockings.
