MD Podiatrist Discusses Benefits of Compression Socks

Whether you’re an avid runner, a frequent customer at your local gym or a casual walker, you may be missing out on not-so-secret benefits that compression socks have to offer. Dan Michaels, DPM, states that these particular benefits include increased stamina and less lower extremity discomfort post-exercise. 
“After a strenuous workout, high levels of waste products such as lactic acid can build up in the blood, causing discomfort and diminished performance. Additionally, the body and muscles require oxygen-rich blood to circulate through the arteries and veins to help maintain peak performance,” Dr. Michaels said.
