THE SPLENDID SORCERY OF COMPRESSION SOCKS
(FOR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS ON THEIR FEET ALL DAY)
When you decided to devote your life to being a healthcare professional, you knew the role came with long hours, overnight shifts and plenty of time on your feet. Though, I doubt many of us considered the soreness and pain that came with those long shifts; mostly in your legs and feet. Any wise veteran healthcare professional will give you the advice to take care of your legs and feet. Shoes are an integral part of surviving those chaotic long shifts on your feet, and well, we have another little secret you may or may not have tried; compression socks!
Compressions socks you say? We advise our patients to use those for recovery, why would it help me? Why has no one ever told me about this sorcery? What magic do these socks hold?
First off, for the same reason we recommend them to our patients (to aid in recovery) we could benefit from them being on our own feet; they are proven to help increase circulation of blood flow and oxygen, reduce swelling… even relieve the symptoms and slow the progress of varicose veins, which is caused by extended periods standing.
A few other awesome-sauce (or shall we say OSMSauce ;) benefits of compression socks:
• Your dress code doesn’t Impact your sock choice! So get cray-cray with those socks.
• They don’t roll down your legs. They stay put and won’t slip or slide down despite how much you’re running around on your long shift.
• They have some anti-microbial agent so your feet won’t stink after that busy 12 hours shift from hell.
• They are aerated and won’t make your legs feel hot or itchy
Oh, and guess what? We have them (here). Who loves ya? We do. OneStaff does.
So love those long stems of yours, wrap them tight with some fancy OneStaff compression socks and pamper yourself! It will keep your legs looking and feeling fantastic.
