"The Lemon Hero Health compression socks are an innovative concept."
Many elderly patients I have encountered, as a result of medical conditions, such as arthritis, struggle with putting the traditional compression socks on. Lemon Hero Health solves this problem by providing a high quality sock including a zipper.
Research has long shown that using compression socks, helps improve blood flow from the feet, and decreases leg swelling and pain.
For many individuals who spend a lot of time on their feet, pregnant women, patients recovering from surgery, the use of these compression socks can help decrease the risk of blood clots. This is a life-threatening medical condition. In addition, clinical studies suggest that even in patients without symptoms, that the regular use of compression socks is encouraged, to help promote health and wellness.
I use compression socks, and strongly recommend its use to individuals in the community, experiencing leg swelling and discomfort.
