SIGVARIS, the global leader in medical compression therapy, has teamed up with two Fleet Feet Stores in the Atlanta area to bring faster recovery to local athletes.

 PEACHTREE CITY, GA – SIGVARIS’ Athletic Recovery Socks are now available at the Fleet Feet locations in Lawrenceville and John’s Creek.

 Compression socks are a growing trend among competitive athletes, weekend warriors and professional athletes alike. Socks from the Active Therapy Line have been spotted on athletes such as David O’Meara, the one-mile runner and Carl Landry, professional basketball player. Several professional football players endorse SIGVARIS including Anthony Heygood, Joseph Addai and Michael Turner.

 Athletes are using compression socks during and after performance events to improve their results. When a sportsperson slips on SIGVARIS Active Therapy socks, he or she is benefiting from the science behind “true graduated compression” – compression that is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes as it goes up the leg. “True graduated compression” helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated, it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been, or are being, deprived during a workout.

 SIGVARIS created to provide consumers with information on all the socks in the Active Therapy line.

SIGVARIS has several athletic partnerships with established sports organizations including the Atlanta Falcons, the Indianapolis Colts, the New Jersey NETS, Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, and Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing). Several professional athletes also endorse SIGVARIS’ Active Therapy Socks.
