Studies show that professionals who are on their feet all day are at a greater risk of experiencing chronic discomfort and body aches as they age. As a medical professional, you have probably even ended several long shifts with tired, painful feet and swollen ankles. But in the long run, this can lead to several health complications, including varicose veins.
As always, Scrubs of Evans is here with a stylish and comfortable answer to all your problems—our range of Sockwell compression socks can provide your feet with the comfort and support you need to power through those long 12-hour shifts.
Keep reading to find out why you need to invest in several pairs of high-quality Sockwell graduated compression socks immediately.
What Are Compression Socks and How Can They Help You?
As you know, compression socks are widely prescribed for athletes and patients with varicose veins. Many people don’t know that medical professionals can also majorly benefit from compression socks.
These socks are generally tight around the foot and ankle, and the compression gradually relaxes as they go up to your calf. This gradual compression is intentional, and it allows natural blood flow to your feet, reducing pain and swelling.
If you work in the medical industry, your job probably requires staying seated or standing for an extended period. These can disrupt regular blood flow and cause your feet to swell and hurt. All this can further lead to discomfort and decreased mental alertness. The graduated compression socks from Sockwell promote regular blood flow and improve everyday wellness, allowing you to offer patients the best care possible while staying healthy and comfortable.
Also, remember that the earlier in your career you start wearing Sockwell gradual compression socks, the better your chances are of preventing varicose veins and other issues in the future.
Benefits of Compression Socks for Medical Professionals
Boosts Blood Circulation
Poor circulation can cause various problems, including frequent muscle cramps, fatigue, throbbing pain, and tingling sensation. Compression socks are designed to stimulate better blood circulation in your legs, meaning your feet also receive increased levels of oxygen and other nutrients they need to fuel through the day.
Provides Relief after Long Shifts
Enhanced blood circulation promotes muscle recovery, allowing your muscles to heal faster after a long day of taking care of patients. Some nurses even wear their Sockwell socks off duty to reduce swelling and boost muscle relaxation.
Helps Manage Varicose Veins Symptoms
Varicose and spider veins are not just unpleasant to look at, but they can also cause severe pain and discomfort. Sockwell compression socks are just what your veins need after you’ve spent all day running around looking after your patients. These socks can prevent varicose veins and even help reduce the symptoms of existing ones.
Sitting or standing on your feet all day can lead to fluid buildup in the muscle tissue, resulting in swollen legs. The subsequent pain and discomfort can get in the way of performing your job to your full potential. As Sockwell socks are tighter around the feet and ankles, which is where most of the swelling occurs, the blood is forced to flow upwards, reducing most of the swelling.
Stylish and Comfortable
At Scrubs of Evans, we outfit medical professionals with comfortable clothing from head to toe without compromising style. Our collection of Sockwell compression socks is no exception to this.
Made with American-grown fine merino wool blends spun with bamboo rayon or alpaca, these socks are incredibly soft and comfortable to wear. Merino wool is also known for its exceptional ability to absorb moisture, regulate temperature, and prevent sweaty and smelly feet. In addition, merino wool is also biodegradable and renewable.
Sockwell Socks also come with built-in elastic bands that keep them in place when you are moving. This means you won’t have to stop and pull up your socks when rushing to save patients. These socks are also fitted with padding to give your feet extra support.
And the best part, Sockwell socks come in a variety of unique styles, colors, patterns, sizes, lengths, and compression levels. Whether your preferred style or the facility dress code, you can easily find a Sockwell sock that matches your style requirements and meets regulations. You can even wear compression socks as a base layer under your regular socks.
We’ve already established that Sockwell socks are comfortable, stylish, and therapeutic. But did you know that they are also very affordable? A pair of Sockwell socks usually cost less than $30, making them one of the most affordable brands of compression socks on the market.
Finding the Perfect Sockwell Compression Socks for You
At Scrubs of Evans, we understand the importance of finding the perfect fit. As Sockwell socks are designed from top to toe with spandex, you will find a great fit without being confused by complicated sizing options. Women’s sizes range from S/M to M/L, while men’s sizes come in M/L, L/XL, and even XXL.
If you have a fuller calf and are concerned that the compression socks might be too snug around your calf, you probably haven’t checked out our wide calf-fit compression socks. Though the foot sizing is similar to our other styles, the circumference around the calf is 15% to 20% wider than our regular fit.
You might also be wondering about the compression level. Most experts advise you to start with our moderate (15–20 mmHg) compression socks. Once you’ve gotten used to wearing Sockwell socks, you can move on to wearing firmer (20–30 mmHg) compression socks.
Sockwell socks are available in various designs, colors, and lengths, including knee-high, crew, quarter, and micro sizes. After all, just because your stockings are comfortable and therapeutic doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with them.
At Scrubs of Evans, we believe that a comfortable and stylish pair of scrubs needs the perfect socks to complete the look.
