Compression socks for running are used by both high level and recreational runners. High level training can cause muscle soreness in your body. Compression socks have a unique design that improves fatigue after a long run, speeds up recovery time, and helps prevent injury.
WHAT MAKES THESE RUNNING SOCKS BETTER?
These compression socks feature strong elastic and nylon to provide enough compression for runners and have a knee high length. They offer graduated compression that is perfect for fighting tight calves and feelings of calf fatigue after long runs. This compression gear can also be used to enhance arch support for plantar fasciitis and shin splints.
Many runners swear by running compression socks because they compress the veins, arteries, and muscles in the calf to help blood circulation of oxygen-rich cells to the muscles which improves recovery. Today's run socks increase blood flow which makes it less possible for pooling of blood near your feet.
HOW DO COMPRESSION SOCKS FOR RUNNING WORK?
Wearing compression gear is thought to aid athletic performance by improving blood flow, limiting edema in the legs, transporting more oxygen to the muscles, enhancing the removal of lactic acid build-up, and decreasing muscle soreness after you exercise. In summary, improving circulation of blood back to the heart equals increased blood and oxygen flow to muscles trying to recover.
