People looking to reduce their risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) should look into compression socks. DVT is a condition where a blood clot develops in the leg, and it can become quite dangerous if left unaddressed. Compression socks significantly lower the chance you’ll develop DVT by preventing leg swelling. The pressure provided by compression socks also helps to relieve the pain of sore ankles, tired legs, venous insufficiency, and even varicose veins, as well as other foot and leg conditions.
Compression sleeves serve the same purposes as compression socks, but they come in a wider variety. There are long-sleeve tops, calf sleeves, arm sleeves and more. A blend of nylon and spandex makes up the fabric used for compression sleeves. Wearing compression sleeves on the upper body following exercise can help to reduce inflammation and swelling.
