Sports injuries to the foot and ankle region are a fact of life for many people pursueing a fit and healthy lifestyle or participating in team sports events. The incidence of injuries rises in the winter months with basketball and football season and at times some people can find themselves under pressure to work through an injury taking pharmaceuticals to mask the pain instead of addressing the the underlying cause.
In a statement today by compression sock manufacturer Base Socks they highlighted the need to address injury cause and pointed out that a compression sock that can be worn whilst exercising can actually aid the recovery of the affected ankle or foot whilst giving pain relief during exercise allowing people to continue with their pasttimes and sports without further aggravating their injury.
A spokesperson for Base Socks commented, “Pharmaceuticals only mask the pain of an injury without addressing cause or aiding recovery in any way. A compression sock will not only relieve pain by giving support where needed but also help aid recovery. By using graduated compression in the correct areas, the compression sock targets the areas for supprt whilst allowing blood flow to remain. This not only takes the stress of the injured area but blood flow management allows the area to heal whilst the compression sock is being worn.”
The Base Socks Orthotics Compression Socks are a new graduated compression sock that provides medical grade graduated compression support for all types of foot and ankle pain to include Plantar Fasciitis. The slim pair of socks that can be worn throughout the day under normal wear provide relief for Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles tendon, stress fractures, Edema and heel spurs. The compression sock provides targeted orthopaedic support through its graduated levels of compression so that support is aimed at the ankle, arch and heel but allows flexibility for blood flow and movement. They make excellent as support for all types of sports and exercise regimes that put added stress on the foot and ankle. The compression sleeve is also used by travellers and helps regulate blood flow and swelling often experienced on flights.
The spokesperson continued, “If someone has an injury they should always consult a medical professional as there re times when you need to stop exercising to allow an injury to heal. But in many cases a compression sock can make the difference between being able to continue to be active while the injury heals or just spending months dealing with the pain of an injury through painkillers that mask the symptoms on an injury.”
