How To Improve Blood Circulation

People wear compression socks to feel good, exercise, and avoid serious illnesses.

They can improve your blood circulation. They can help reduce leg pain and swelling. They can also reduce the chance of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), certain types of blood clots, and other circulatory problems.

The pressure these socks put on your legs will help your blood vessels function better. The arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to your muscles can relax, allowing blood to flow freely. The veins are pushed, pushing blood back into your heart.
