Lifestyle benefits of Compression
Compression isn’t just for diagnosed medical conditions. It can be for every person, in every stage of life, and at every degree of health and activity level. From pregnancy to travel, wearing medical compression can improve overall wellbeing and quality of life.
In a recent study published by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, Inc., it was determined that patients with venous health conditions experienced lifestyle benefits when wearing medical-grade levels of graduated compression. Not only physical improvements like swelling and cosmetic enhancements occurred, but lifestyle benefits such as reduction in sleep problems, an increase in patient activity, and an improvement of overall wellbeing were found.
Knowing that compression benefits nearly everyone who wears it, there are various types of compression that fit each person’s unique lifestyle and needs. But which one will work the best for the individual you?
