For Immediate Release:
Atlanta, GA: SIGVARIS, the global leader of graduated compression garments, will be present at the Peachtree Health & Fitness Expo on July 2-3 at the AmericasMart in downtown Atlanta to educate Peachtree Road race runners and active people about the benefits of wearing “true graduated compression” socks.

At the event several lucky runners will have a chance to win a pair of SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Socks, as well as one lucky winner will be one of the first to try a new Active Therapy product that will be released later this year. The Peachtree Health & Fitness Expo is free and open to the public.

A growing trend among competitive athletes and weekend warriors, professional sports athletes are using compression socks during and after performance events to improve their results. The SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery sock flushes out lactic acid and provides relief from delayed leg muscle soreness after strenuous exercise or competition.

The SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery sock is part of the SIGVARIS Active Therapy line. It has been supplied to both the Atlanta Falcons and the Indianapolis Colts for wear during training, after practices and during travel.

David O’Meara, The One Mile Runner, said, ““I have been wearing compression socks for better athletic performance and improved recovery over the last couple of years. The Active Therapy socks from SIGVARIS are absolutely amazing! The socks have helped me increase my running speed and decrease my recovery time…From the airplane to the race, SIGVARIS will be an essential piece of equipment for me to succeed in difficult conditions.”

SIGVARIS sponsors several running events each year, to help educate athletes about the value and benefits of wearing true graduated compression.

SIGVARIS created to provide consumers with information on the new sock – Athletic Recovery, as well as a forum for athletes to discuss their compression therapy experiences and results.

The Peachtree Road Race is an Atlanta tradition and takes place every year on July 4th. For more information about the Peachtree Road Race, visit
