The benefits of compression therapy have many features for adults of all ages, whether they are athletes in the prime of their lives or retirees in their golden years.

​What Is Compression Therapy Used for?

Improved Athletic Performance

Professional athletes, trainers, and physical therapists have long understood and relied on the power of compression. But now even everyday people are beginning to use compression as an integral part of their regular workouts.

Blood Circulation During Long or Frequent Flights

Business travelers quickly learn of the aches and pains that come with poor circulation on long flights. Flight passengers can wear compression garments to prevent this from happening. These garments also help in preventing blood clots and deep vein thrombosis which can occur during long flights.

Healthy Posture and Blood Flow During Pregnancy

Business travelers quickly learn of the aches and pains that come with poor circulation on long flights. Flight passengers can wear compression garments to prevent this from happening. These garments also help in preventing blood clots and deep vein thrombosis which can occur during long flights.

Improved Blood Flow for People Who Are On Their Feet A lot

Pregnant women and frequent fliers aren’t the only ones who frequently suffer from poor circulation. Anyone who has had a career that required them to stand for long hours knows how hard it can be to keep your legs healthy and prevent swelling after a long week of work. Compression socks are a great option for anyone who spends their hours standing.

Treating Problematic Veins

Poor circulation often leads to visible veins. When blood pressure increases inside your veins, they become twisted and swollen. This makes it even harder for blood to travel back to the heart. These veins are often visible under the skin.
If the pressure continues to build in your veins, the fluid that builds up can create an open sore: a venous ulcer. Compression therapy, which improves circulation, can help treat each of these issues, sometimes even when no other treatments are used.

Treating Lymphedema

Sometimes people experience swelling in an arm or leg or in the head and neck after cancer-related surgeries involving one of the lymph nodes. The body cannot drain lymphatic fluid from that part of the body any longer. Compression garments and therapies are used to help drain the affected area and promote recovery.

Reduces Appearance
of Veins

Scientists have found that patients can dramatically reduce the appearance of visible veins by regularly using compression therapies. Since these veins are caused when pressure builds in the veins, causing them to twist and become engorged, compression reduces the built-up pressure and helps blood flow more smoothly.

Relieves Pain

Compression often relieves pain. When garments or technology compress the muscles, it forces the blood back towards your heart. This makes your muscles feel lighter and also relieves discomfort.

Keeps Muscles Warm and Increases Flexibility

Compression keeps muscles warm, which is a bonus for athletes. When your muscles are warm, they become more flexible and have a wider range of motion.

More Oxygen in Your Muscles

Medical studies have found that compression increases the amount of oxygen found in muscles. Oxygen is fuel for your muscles, and it also helps heal any soreness after exertion.

Quicker Recovery

By compressing the veins, blood moves faster through your system. Metabolic wastes that build in the tissues are carried away in the veins and back toward the heart. Compression helps drain these metabolic wastes more efficiently, which helps speed the recovery process. This is true of both recovering after an intense workout and after many types of surgeries.

Increases Awareness of Your Body

Interestingly, studies have found that people using compression therapies feel they are more in tune with their bodies. Because compression therapies put pressure on the skin, they activate the receptors that communicate with your brain and tell you exactly where your legs, arms, hands, and feet are and what they are doing.
