Best Compression Socks for Nurses
Nurses work long shifts, which can lead to aching, swollen legs and low energy levels. Compression socks can help alleviate these symptoms by squeezing the leg, promoting venous blood flow to return to the heart.
If you wear compression during a long shift in the OR, patient care floor or wherever you are needed, your legs will be less heavy and achy when you finally go home. You may even notice increased energy levels! This is because compression socks use graduated pressure to squeeze your legs, with the strongest pressure at your ankle and progressively lessening as they go up your leg. This leg hug improves circulation and blood flow. Wearing compression legwear can also help prevent a DVT as well as spider and varicose veins from forming. Rejuva compression legwear works hard, just like you and even better is our selection of patterns and colors!
If your doctor has not prescribed a compression level, you should wear 15-20 mmHg. 15-20 mmHg compression is also good for travel, pregnancy and overall leg health, so you can wear them when you aren't at work.
