Medically endorsed SIGVARIS, the global leader in graduated compression socks & stockings, proudly announces its partnership with David O’Meara – the One Mile Runner and world-renowned coach, speaker, author and athlete.

Apr 15, 2010 – Atlanta, GA: SIGVARIS continues its quest to inform and educate patients, medical professionals and consumers about the benefits of graduated compression socks and stockings. This time around it’s by bringing on board a well known coach, speaker, author and athlete by the name of David O’Meara, also known as the “One Mile Runner.”

David, on behalf of SIGVARIS, will undertake various speaking engagements, attend sporting events and other athletic forums, wearing and actively demonstrating and educating his audiences about the real benefits of the SIGVARIS line of true graduated compression socks.

“I have been wearing compression socks for better athletic performance and improved recovery over the last couple of years. The new Athletic Recovery socks from Sigvaris are absolutely amazing! The socks have helped me increase my running speed and decrease my recovery time. I will be wearing my new Sigvaris socks exclusively during my worldwide event this summer called ‘Around The World In Less Than 30 Minutes.’ From the airplane to the race, Sigvaris will be an essential piece of equipment for me to succeed in difficult conditions,” says David O’Meara.

A growing trend among competitive athletes and weekend warriors is the use of compression therapy socks to help improve athletic performance and speed up recovery. Compression therapy is a hot topic in sports media right now as a growing number of triathletes, marathon runners and professional sports athletes are using compression socks during and after performances 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.

Wearing compression during and after strenuous exercise or competition can help flush out lactic acid and also provide symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness. Graduated compression socks can also be worn to help support, by stimulating blood circulation, recovery from sports injuries.

SIGVARIS created http://www.athleticrecoverysock.com/ to provide athletes and weekend warriors with information on sports compression socks, as well as a forum for athletes to discuss their compression therapy experiences and results.

SIGVARIS has other high-visibility partnerships in place with, among others, the Indianapolis Colts, NFL’S WINNINGEST TEAM FROM 1999-2009; http://www.colts.com, and LPGA’s Brittany Lincicome; http://brittanylincicome.net/

SIGVARIS, through the Athletic Recovery line of socks, also has strategic partnerships in place with established endurance sports organizations in North America, such as: Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, and Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing).
