These days most of us find ourselves sitting or standing for long hours each day due to work and school, and after that, at home when we’re tired from the day’s activities. And while standing may be better than being completely sedentary, for many of us, we’re still not getting in enough movement and exercise every day. Over time, all this lack of movement can take a toll on our bodies, especially our legs.
Compression therapy can help reduce the aches, pains and swelling that occurs in our legs and feet due to extended sitting or standing. If you’re dealing with a chronic medical condition, or your profession requires frequent air travel, or maybe you’re just on your feet all day at work, compression therapy can help. Furthermore, it’s always best to catch a problem before it starts. Did you know that over 80% of the world’s population will be affected by Chronic Venous Disorders (CVD) at some point in their lives?1 So whether you are currently experiencing aches and pains, or want to take steps to prevent potential problems down the road, there’s no better time to start than now.
