The benefits of compression stockings for standing or sitting all day
Compression socks are a type of stocking that fits better than regular socks. The tightness is comfortable, but not uncomfortable. This tightness creates a safe pressure that helps promote healthy blood flow and circulation, especially when pumping blood up to the heart.
Compression stockings offer many other benefits that can make a huge difference in your workday.
Improve blood flow:
Think about all the potential health complications listed above; most have one thing in common: poor or interrupted circulation. For example, when you stand for too long, you may develop varicose veins because inflammation impairs blood circulation in your legs. For those who sit all day, your cardiovascular health is at risk due to blood clotting.
Research shows that compression stockings are safe and effective in increasing blood flow and promoting healthy circulation. As we'll discuss below, proper blood flow has many benefits of its own, including improved nutrient delivery and absorption and prevention of clotting and varicose veins.
Prevent blood clotting:
Studies have shown that sitting for hours on end without rest can significantly increase the risk of blood clots.
Under normal and healthy conditions, a blood clot is a gel-like substance that forms around a cut or injury to keep you from bleeding.
However, if you have a blood clot, such as a varicose vein, from sitting for too long, the gel-like substance has nowhere to go. Eventually, it breaks and travels up the body, getting stuck in the lungs or heart. It's an understatement to say this is a serious health risk. Research
showed that compression stockings significantly reduced the risk of blood clotting when standing and sitting for long periods of time.
To prevent varicose veins:
Continuing the above points, compression stockings prevent blood from building up in the veins of the legs. Varicose veins are caused when inflammation slows blood flow to the lower body, causing blood to pool.
Compression stockings force blood upwards, promoting healthy circulation and reducing the risk of varicose vein pain.
If you're standing most of the day, there's no doubt your feet and calves will swell. An easy way to check is to pay attention when you take off your shoes. Are you having a hard time slipping them off after get off work because they feel tighter or stuck? That's swelling.
Fortunately, compression stockings can reduce swelling in the lower body by preventing fluid build-up. In fact, one study looked at the workforce who had to stand all day. The study found that workers who used compression stockings reported less swelling and pain, even after long shifts.
The researchers strongly recommend that those who do not have the opportunity to sit during their shift wear compression socks during their 12-hour shift.
Promotes lymphatic system function:
Inside your body, there is something called the lymphatic system. Its main effects include promoting healthy circulation, enhancing immune response and supporting essential detoxification. When you have poor circulation, you are at risk of developing a condition called lymphedema, a buildup of lymph fluid.
Studies have shown that compression stockings can effectively improve the circulation of the lymphatic system and significantly reduce the risk of developing lymphedema.
Who can benefit the most from compression socks?
Compression stockings are a safe way to promote healthy blood flow and circulation in the general population. But compression socks that sit or stand all day are especially helpful for those in the following occupational fields:
Medical professionals such as nurses, doctors and dentists.
- Office workers such as call center representatives, customer service and IT representatives.
- Business travelers, especially long-distance travelers on business.
