TIRED, ACHY, RESTLESS LEGS
AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED COMPRESSION
Tired, Achy Legs from Poor Blood Circulation
If your blood doesn’t circulate correctly, your legs can feel tired or achy. Gravity contributes to the issue by allowing blood to pool in your ankles and feet. This condition can occur if someone spends a significant portion of the day standing or sitting. Many times this can be accompanied by restless leg syndrome, or an uncomfortable ache, throb, and urge to move the legs, particularly at night during sleep.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Prevent and Relieve Tired, Achy, Restless Legs
True gradient compression, which is greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases as it moves up the stocking can help increase blood flow to the lower body. The increase in blood flow has the dual benefit of relieving swelling and reducing pain, but also improved circulation will prevent further tired, achy legs from occurring.
