Why Every Nurse Should Wear Compression Socks

Crazy Compression

Posted on June 12 2017


Here at Crazy Compression, it’s no secret that we love nurses! We believe that nurses are so important to our society by promoting wellness and save lives. However, one thing that tends to be common, is that they spend a lot of time on their feet. If you are a nurse (or if you have a nurse in your life) keep reading to learn why compression socks will make a big difference in your work day and beyond. Here are five reasons every nurse needs compression socks.


Compression Socks Reduce Leg Fatigue

​Compression socks can help reduce the level of heaviness and leg fatigue nurses often experience. This is because compression socks are designed to improve the circulation of blood within the legs. The boost in blood flow brings with it increased levels of oxygen and other much-needed nutrients to give your legs the fuel they need throughout the work day.

Compression Socks Reduce Swelling

Being on your feet all day often leads to a buildup of fluid in the muscle tissue or the swelling of the legs. This pooling of fluid can be very painful and may even impact your ability to perform your job well. This is another great reason why every nurse needs compression socks. Wearing compression socks can help to keep your legs from swelling by forcing the blood to flow upwards. Compression socks provide graduated compression which means that they are tightest around the feet and lower legs which are usually the most affected areas when it comes to swelling.

Compression Socks Reduce Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are not only unsightly, but they can be downright painful. Since these veins put pressure on the leg, compression socks reduce the buildup of blood in the veins. This means that compression socks are an excellent treatment option for relieving the symptoms of varicose veins -- which means you can enjoy showing your legs on your days off!

Compression Socks Help with Muscle Recovery

The benefits of compression socks don’t end when your working day is through. It is advisable to wear compression socks when you are at home relaxing to boost muscle recovery. In other words, your feet still need care even after your 12-hour shift is over. Continue wearing your compression socks to reduce swelling, boost circulation and relieve soreness in the legs and feet.
