Sleeping In Compression Socks
Compression socks are made by use of stitching and specific material to segregate muscle groups so as to provide graduated compression for maximum return of the blood to the heart from the ankle to thigh. They are commonly worn by cyclists and athletics as training socks where they are very helpful in producing better efficiency, acting as a suspension system for the muscle and also as a mechanism to delay fatigue. These help the trainees to have stronger long runs or efficient long rides as well as using them as recovery socks for quicker recovery for the next day of training.
Sleeping with performance compression socks has various benefits such as limiting swellings as well as reducing the risk of deep vein thrombosis. Additionally, compression also does great work in improving blood pooling in the lower leg therefore helping in efficient blood circulation. Sleeping with compression socks is also beneficial especially after exercise or a long walk in building up of lactic acid in muscle tissues which if not properly eliminated it will contribute to onset muscle soreness. Wearing socks while sleeping is also great while recovering and they play a very big significant role in reducing fatigue.
Additionally, wearing compression socks also helps to keep your body warm and enable one to have a tight sleep that is free from cold. The materials that the socks are made from control the temperatures and the wicking of the moisture and also prevent the body from overheating while keeping the muscles warm. It is, however, advisable to consult the medical physician when choosing the best compression socks to sleep with which is usually measured in millimeter per mercury (mmHg).
