“It’s easy to endorse a product if you really believe in it,” Heygood says. “After recovering from an injury and trying these socks, I’m a believer in the benefits of wearing true graduated compression.”

After injuring his Achilles tendon the first week of training camp, Heygood began using compression socks. His doctor had prescribed a walking boot for his leg, but Heygood felt like it was cutting off the circulation to his foot. He discovered that graduated compression socks helped improve his circulation, allowing him to heal faster. The socks worked so well that Heygood contacted SIGVARIS wanting to try more graduated compression socks.

Now recovered, Heygood still wears the SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Socks under his team socks during games, and for two to three hours following a game or practice. “I like the cushion that the socks provide with my cleats,” Heygood says. “The socks put life in your feet, and you heal faster after you are finished working out.”

The use of compression wear is a growing trend among athletes worldwide. When athletes wear true graduated compression, compression that is tightest at the ankle, during and after exercise or competition it helps flush out lactic acid and provides symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness. SIGVARIS manufactures both a Performance Sock and an Athletic Recovery Sock to help athletes peak their performance and speed up their recovery time!

SIGVARIS created www.athleticrecoverysock.com and www.performancesock.com to provide consumers with information about the socks in the Active Therapy line.
