Compression Socks and Edema


Edema occurs when the blood vessels in your body, primarily in your legs, leak fluid and end up causing swelling in that part of the body. Edema can occur for a few different reasons. It is usually caused as a side effect to medication for high blood pressure or steroids, and usually occurs when people indulge in a high sodium diet, are overweight, have an inactive lifestyle, or are pregnant. 

Sometimes, edema can be indicative of a more serious condition such as compromised heart function, kidney damage, or the beginnings of a venous condition that requires monitoring or intervention. 

Compression Socks

Compression socks are considered to be an effective tool to reduce the impacts of edema. First off, they improve blood circulation and blood flow from the legs to the heart. They also help provide support in the ankles, legs, and calves while improving lymphatic drainage and reducing fatigue in the legs. 

Edema affects people who sit in one place for a long time or have an inactive lifestyle. Studies and clinical trials show that both swelling and inflammation are effectively reduced by wearing compression socks.

 In pregnancy, edema is caused by the excess fluid your body produces to house the baby which is why many pregnant women deal with swollen ankles or legs. 

As always, it is important to find the right fit for your compression socks. Gentle compression helps reduce swelling, and improve blood circulation. It is important to ensure that they are not too tight which is uncomfortable for all-day use. A variety of styles in compression socks ranging from footless sleeve designs to knee or ankle length designs ensure that there are options for all clothing or style requirements and can be worn subtly with trousers or sandals, if desired.
