Doctor's Orders! Using Compression to Treat Common Sports Injuries

Doctor's Orders! Using Compression to Treat Common Sports Injuries

Did you know that compression is often an elemental part of a recovery plan for foot and leg injuries? More and more podiatrists are recommending compression socks to patients for common leg and feet ailments, including those that are running and workout-related.

While compression has been routinely and widely used to treat swelling and improve circulation, the medical community is still discovering its numerous applications.  Some of those include prevention and/or treatment of the following:
  • plantar fasciitis
  • shin splints
  • strains
  • sprains
  • cramps
  • tendinitis
  • arthritis

Furthermore, compression can improve our sensation and spatial awareness of limbs (proprioception) making it easier and safer to walk/run. Since many of these afflictions can be running/exercise induced, doctors are finding that compression socks can be both a preventative and rehabilitative measure.

So why choose Lily Trotters compression over other choices?  As local podiatrist Dr. Stewart has testified, patients often ignore doctors’ orders to wear compression, thinking it will be too tight to wear or too challenging to put on, but “Lily Trotters compression socks are patient-friendly and go on easily, therefore minimizing patient compliance issues”. Additionally, while other compression sock brands offer products that span from either inferior quality to exorbitant luxury, Lily Trotters “are made out of high-quality, durable material[s] that stand the test of time and maintain their compression with frequent use making them a value efficient purchase.” And let’s not forget that our socks are not only high performance, but also stylish!
