Compression vs Support Socks
What is the difference and which is most suitable?
Compression Running Socks
You can wear compression running socks either during exercise, or as a recovery sock.
During exercise they give support and stability to the calf muscles and lower-limb soft-tissues. As a result, they improve biomechanical efficiency and help guard against compartment syndrome. They also encourage blood-flow, which helps remove lactate from the muscle. Compression running socks also aid proprioception which is the body's sense of where it is in space.
As a recovery sock they aid blood and lymphatic flow. As a result, helping removal of lactate from the muscles in the lower leg post exercise. Compression also helps reduce swelling.
These target compression to aid the function of certain soft-tissue structures in the lower limb/foot. In particular, the unique Ultimate Performance Support Sock supports almost all the major ligaments and tendons in the foot and ankle.
