POOR BLOOD CIRCULATION
AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED COMPRESSION
Poor Blood Circulation
The body’s circulatory system has a very big responsibility in keeping a person alive – oxygenating the body. Poor blood circulation is usually caused by another issue, namely diabetes, heart conditions, or other vein or arterial issues. In addition to not adequately supplying the body with oxygen-rich blood, poor blood circulation can lead to other serious issues, like blood clots, and varicose veins. Poor blood circulation can cause pain and a tired, achy feeling in the legs and feet.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Improve and Increase Circulation
Gradient compression is greatest at the ankle and decreases as the stocking gets further up the leg. This graduated pressure generated by gradient compression socks and hosiery encourages the blood to flow back toward the heart. Gradient compression will additionally help to heal any tissue damage, decrease swelling, and relieve any pain associated with poor blood circulation and related conditions.
