While some may think that support stockings are only used for medical related circumstances, we are finding that there are more and more benefits and reasons to wear support stockings.  Whether you use compression socks, support stockings, or compression stockings, odds are you are referring to the same type of product.  With all the new styles, fabrics, and colors available, it has become easier to wear support stockings every day without looking obvious when wearing these special garments.  For example, compression stockings for men are typically designed to look like regular men’s dress socks and come in popular colors like black, navy, or khaki.  Whether man or woman, young or old, compression stockings can help increase blood circulation throughout your body, which helps boost your energy levels and reduce swelling, tiredness, or soreness in your legs and lower body.



If your job requires you to sit or stand in the same place for extended periods of time, wearing compression socks are very beneficial.  The graduated pressure provided by compression socks helps bring relief to tired, achy feet and legs.  As mentioned, there are compression stockings for men available that are so discreet that they look very similar to the ordinary socks you might already wear to work every day. You should always check with your doctor to make sure there isn’t a limit to the amount of consecutive time you can wear your support stockings during the day.  Sometimes, wearing the support stockings in excess of the time indicated by your doctor can worsen symptoms or lead to other complications.  Otherwise, you could wear the compression socks all day long to maintain a healthy increase in circulation and ward off swelling or muscle fatigue.
