Nursing is long, hard work. Fortunately, compression socks alleviate a whole lot of issues for people who spend too much time on their feet.
After a 12-hour shift, pain is almost guaranteed. That’s because spending too much time sitting or standing causes the blood to pool in the lower legs, leading to extreme leg fatigue. Over time, this can result in a whole host of vein-related issues.
The graduated pressure in Belair compression stockings gently compresses surface arteries and veins, encouraging the blood to flow back to the heart. Boosting blood circulation can reduce swelling and fatigue, prevent the onset of varicose veins and other circulatory issues, and reduce muscle soreness. If you’re an upstanding professional, pulling on a pair of compression socks is an easy option to keep your legs happy and healthy, no matter how much time you spend on your feet.
