Compression Therapy and Athletes
A growing trend among competitive athletes is the use of compression therapy socks to help improve their athletic performance. Compression therapy is a hot topic in sports media right now as a growing number of triathletes, marathon runners and professional sports athletes are trying compression socks during performance to improve their results. Whether it’s during the actual event, after the event, or even while traveling, athletes are making graduated compression socks part of their everyday attire.

Not All Compression Is Created Equal
A number of sock manufacturers are claiming to offer “compression” socks for athletic use. Unfortunately, many of these “compression” socks do not have true graduated compression. Instead, they may feature a tight foot band, or vertical stripes, or a wide variety of features meant to imply foot or leg support. SIGVARIS retailers have been trained to properly explain the difference between these kinds of socks and true graduated compression that is available in the SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Sock.
SIGVARIS Socks For Competitive Athletes & Weekend Warriors
The good news is graduated compression therapy can help athletes of all levels, from top performers down to weekend warriors! Compression therapy can be worn during and after athletic performance to improve results as well as recovery.
