Compression socks can help with a variety of common health conditions. Perhaps your doctor recently recommended medical compression socks for you or a loved one, or you have a long trip ahead and would like to minimize the chances of Deep Vein Thrombosis. Perhaps your legs just feel tired from standing all day.
But are you dreading the struggle to put them on or aren’t physically able to? As we will show here wearing compression stockings can be so much easier if you use the Zippered style from companies such as Lemon Hero Health.
Why Do People Avoid Wearing Compression Socks?
First, it can be hard to get a custom fitting. You may not have a medical supply store nearby, and compression stockings must be fitted to the individual, so many people put it off or avoid getting measured. However, these days there are plenty of detailed instructions online that can help you or your family member measure for the perfect fit at home.
They are a struggle
Second, no one wants to struggle to put on socks every day, no matter how good they may be for his or her health. And some patients have medical conditions that make it difficult to bend or stretch to put on regular clothing, much less compression stockings. Even with assistance from someone, it can be a difficult process.
So what’s the solution?
Introducing Zippered Compression Socks
That’s where newly-innovated Zippered Compression Socks come in. Even reluctant wearers have been convinced after trying a pair.
It’s no good if you give up on using compression stockings that could improve or even save your life because they are difficult to use or don’t fit correctly.
A zippered medical sock fits over your foot and ankle and then zips up your calf for easy wearing.
And don’t worry about getting pinched as you zip them - the compression stockings are designed with a protective flap between the zipper and your leg to protect your skin and keep the zipper from rubbing against your leg.
An open toe design keeps your toes free to wiggle, and the quality construction means your zippered compression socks are durable.
Buying the Right Compression Sock for You
Fit is key. Men and women come in all shapes and sizes, so look for a product that has a wide variety of sizes to choose from so you can get the best fitting compression socks for you. It’s important to get the right size because poorly fitting compression stockings can break the skin or reduce blood flow instead of improving blood circulation.
Fortunately, a few manufacturers, such as Lemon Hero Health, have recently responded to fit concerns and are now providing a wider variety of sizes. This size chart for Lemon Hero zippered support stockings shows the many sizes available.
Nowadays there are even options for those with shorter legs to ensure a more customized fit.
You can check the size chart for guidelines on how to select the best zippered compression stockings for you. Fortunately, if there is any problem with fit, Lemon Hero will easily exchange it for the correct size.
The amount of compression is important. Ideally, you want support and not uncomfortable tightness. The compression level of stockings is measured in the same way blood pressure is measured – millimeters of mercury. A higher number equals more pressure.
Follow your doctor’s recommendations on the level of compression if you are wearing compression stockings for a specific health condition. If your doctor hasn’t recommended a specific compression level, you can consult the chart below.
So which level of compression is best for you or your family member?
Compression support stockings come in:
Mild (8-15 mmHg) - Best for those who sit or stand for long periods
Moderate (15-20 mmHg) - Best for travelers to prevent blood clots and to prevent or relieve minor spider veins and varicose veins
Firm (20-30 mmHg) - Best for patients after surgery, to prevent fainting upon standing, and for moderate varicose veins or swelling
Extra firm (30-40 mmHg) - Best for those with severe lymphodema, varicose veins, or swelling
Find the right fit and support, and compression socks can improve your life, maintain your independence, and protect you from serious health complications.
