Benefits of Compression Socks for Nurses

Benefits of compression socks for nurses

Nurses spend most of their time on their feet, and with that comes soreness and even pain. Thankfully, there is help available. Today we're taking a look at the benefits of compression socks for nurses. 

Run Forever Sports ambassador Megan Berg uses our compression socks not just on race day, but also while working as a nurse. "Many nurses wear compression socks because they can help reduce leg soreness that happens while being on your feet for several hours," Berg said. "The nurses that wear compression socks complain less about foot and leg pain after work. Varicose veins are very common with nurses and the socks help with reducing spider and varicose veins. They also reduce leg swelling. I love the Run Forever Sports Compression Socks because they don't slide down my legs."

"The Mighty Megan" uses compression socks as a nurse, and while running.

Wearing compression socks reduces the appearance of varicose veins. Compression socks put pressure on the veins which reduce the buildup of blood. This cuts out symptoms of varicose veins which is a health benefit to the nurses at work -- and even after work. 

Reduction in fatigue and pain experienced by nurses can be made possible by compression socks.

Compression socks are designed to improve blood circulation which eradicates the heavy feel and leg fatigue often experienced by nurses. The lighter feel of the legs makes work much easier.

The use of compression socks by nurses also decreases swelling of ankles and feet. Nurses that are mostly on their feet can get a buildup of fluid in the muscle tissue which can be very painful. Wearing compression socks forces the blood to flow upwards by tightening the areas around the feet and lower legs. Swelling is therefore prevented hence the nurses are able to perform their job efficiently. 

The softness, breathability, and moisture-wicking properties of Run Forever Sports compression socks prevent soreness, development of blisters and promote dryness of the feet, as well as comfort and support. 

Many nurses use compression socks to relax the feet and relieve the stressed-out feet and legs. Nurses even wear compression socks even when they are not at work. Just like runners, nurses' muscles need recovery and relaxation while off duty.

Ditch the pain. Enjoy less fatigue, more comfort, and smoother blood circulation. The bottom line is nurses should be wearing compression socks. Get your Run Forever Sports Compression Socks and feel the difference!
