Therapeutic Socks Market: Introduction

  • Therapeutic socks are also known as compression socks. These socks are specially designed to apply pressure to the lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow and reduce discomfort and swelling. Therapeutic socks come in a variety of sizes, lengths and colors. They are also available with different strengths of compression.
  • Patients suffering from issues such as varicose veins and lymphoedema are prescribed to use therapeutic or compression socks. Therapeutic socks can also be soothing and helpful for people with diabetes, who need to remain standing for a good portion of their workday or even those who have disorders in their circulatory system. These socks are primarily worn during the day and taken off in the night, just before going to bed.
