When wear compression socks?
The benefits of wearing compression stockings are many: the most basic thing is to promote venous return and prevent deep vein thrombosis; while running, it can reduce the impact of landing, thereby reducing muscle fatigue and reducing delay. Comforts muscle soreness occurs and enables recovery, reducing the risk of muscle damage to a certain extent.
Since there are so many benefits, do you know how to wear compression socks correctly?
How do I choose the compression level for compression socks and when is it best time to wear them? The answers are listed separately below:
For the previous question, I reckon the purpose of wearing compression socks is to make your foot comfortable."You should feel no pains when wearing them, in the mean time, with marks left on your leg”.
For the other question, I believe that there is no certain rule about when is the best time to wear compression socks. Some runners like to wear them while running to increase blood circulation to the calf muscles. However, some people feels uncomfortable wearing compression socks during their exercise time.
Personally, I like to wear compression socks when recovering after running. Putting them on after the rain can promote blood circulation of the legs after long-distance running or hard training classes. It is also great to wear them on the plane, especially on your way home from the end of the race.
