Compression Socks For Travel

It’s that time of year! Time to go on vacation, enjoy the fruits of your labor, and take a grand holiday. Whether you are traveling by plane, train, or automobile, jaunting across your state, or traveling across the world, travel socks will help you stay healthy and comfortable during your trip. Travel socks aid in long periods of sitting while traveling. They also aid in long periods of standing and walking while enjoying the active adventures that await you on your vacation.

Make Sure You Have Travel Socks When You Board That Airplane

Airplanes can be particularly troublesome for people with DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis). The combination of sitting for a long period and the impact of the gravitational changes on the body can wreak havoc for those that suffer from DVT, and can cause problems in patients with varicose veins, edema, and foot pain. Even otherwise healthy individuals should consider adding travel socks to their traveling arsenal, as a condition called Economy Class Stroke Syndrome has been discovered where there is a small hole between the upper chambers of the heart (Patent Foramen Ovale, PFO)  that didn’t close properly in early childhood. It occurs in a quarter of the population, does not otherwise cause problems, and is not usually detected, because it poses no other real threat. The problem presents itself when a blood clot passes through the small hole (PFO) and makes it’s way to the brain causing a stroke/strokes. Doctors are seeing Economy Class Stroke Syndrome more and more with a consistent link between recent long periods of sitting during travel, and life altering or deadly strokes.  They are urging their patients to wear travel socks as an easy, inexpensive remedy to protect patients, save lives, and keep them comfortable while traveling.  

Compression Socks for Travel Help Prevent DVT

Travel socks are beneficial while driving, riding, or flying by squeezing legs with just enough pressure to prevent fluids from pooling in the feet or blood from clotting while sitting for long periods of time. Travel Socks give the same benefit for the traveler that is on their feet for long periods of time. Experts suggest passengers on planes, trains, and automobiles wear compression socks/stockings to prevent leg cramps, deep vein thrombosis(clots), and foot pain.
