Foot pain has many faces. And many causes. But almost all conditions can be treated with the right supports, braces and compression. The most common treatment suggested by physiotherapists and podiatrists is the R.I.C.E method. That is a combination of Rest, Icing, Compression and Elevation. Our products help with Rest and Compression. You should immediately treat your pain and our compression socks, ankle braces and splints will help you quickly.
Choosing the right compression socks depends on your individual situation, condition and preference. We have low socks, ankle socks, knee-high compression socks and thigh-high stockings. With closed- or open-toe designs. Open-toe designs are better for warmer days and generally speaking, the higher the socks/stockings go, the more area is affected. So if you want to support your whole legs, go with a thigh-high designs, if you want to support your calves and feet during a run, choose a calf-high designs and if you want to treat plantar fasciitis or a sprained ankle, simply use ankle socks.
Compression socks are a special type of sock that helps to improve blood circulation, reduce swelling and relieve pain. They are often used by athletes or people who have to stand for long periods of time. The socks work by applying gentle pressure to the legs, which helps to push blood back up to the heart. This increased blood flow can help to improve performance, reduce fatigue, and prevent cramping.
Most experts agree that you can wear your compression socks as needed, but take them off at night. This will help to prevent any potential skin irritation or other problems that can occur when the socks are worn for too long. Of course, everyone is different, so you may need to experiment a bit to find the right balance. If you start to experience any discomfort, simply take the socks off for a while and give your feet a break.
In general, it’s best to err on the side of caution when wearing compression socks. By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that you’ll get the most benefit from them without any negative side effects.
Compression socks are often lauded for their ability to improve circulation and reduce swelling, but they can also have some drawbacks. For one thing, they can be uncomfortable to wear, particularly in hot weather. They can also restrict your range of motion, making it difficult to move your legs and feet. Additionally, compression socks can put pressure on your toes and nails, leading to pain and even damage. And finally, if you wear them too tight, they can actually impair circulation rather than improve it. So while compression socks can have some benefits, it’s important to be aware of the potential downsides before you start wearing them.
When putting on a night splint, be sure to read the instructions carefully. The splint should be positioned so that your foot is in a comfortable position and not pushed beyond its normal range of motion. It is also important to make sure that the straps are not too tight and that the padding is positioned correctly in order to avoid pressure points. Most night splints can be adjusted so that they are comfortable for both side and stomach sleepers. If you experience any pain or discomfort while wearing the splint, be sure to adjust it or discontinue use.
You can wear our Pain Relief Foot Compression Sleeves, the Heel & Foot Pain Management Socks, all of our ankle braces and, of course, the Pro Performance Compression Socks for running. Whether you like an ankle sock or knee-high compression socks for running, we have a great option for you in store.
Wearing a support over your clothing is not only uncomfortable but also ineffective. The material can lead to chafing and will prevent the device from doing its job properly, so it’s important that you wear direct contact with skin for proprioceptive effect which helps create stability in joints.
On the other side, you can absolutely wear compression socks under regular socks or hosiery. That way, you can secretly wear compression socks at any occasion without anyone recognizing it. Just make sure that you feel comfortable and wear breathable materials as the top layer to prevent sweating and skin irritation.
