5 Reasons Nurses Should Wear Compression Socks

by Parker Robinson October 31, 2016

Standing on your feet for extended periods of time, such as during a long nursing shift, can cause discomfort and fatigue in your lower legs. Many nurses find themselves stretching as often as possible, wearing supportive shoes, and sitting sporadically to reduce the pain. But, many nurses lack a critical piece to their nursing gear: compression socks. Adding compression socks to your scrub attire will dramatically improve your comfort during your shifts.


  • Help Improve Blood Flow
  • Without compression, shins and calves can easily swell up. Our compression socks and compression leg sleeves help to stabilize muscle tissue keeping the swelling of leg muscle fibers at a micro and manageable level.

  • Lessen Spider and Varicose Veins
  • Standing on your feet for extended periods of time can cause your legs to swell and cause varicose veins or skin ulcers. Nurses that add compression to his/her everyday wear, dramatically reduce swelling and limit the number of nasty veins that pop up.

  • Reduce Fluid from Pooling in Legs
  • By having the greatest amount of compression at the bottom part of the socks and sleeve and less compression at the top, the compression socks and sleeves enhance the flow of oxygen rich blood to your legs, while deoxygenated blood is sent back to the heart at a faster rate

  • Decrease Discomfort During the Day
  • There’s no need to sacrifice your own comfort during your shifts! Even if you can’t get pedicures or foot massages regularly, you can wear compression socks every day to help your feet always feel fabulous.

  • Add Style to Your Scrubs
  • Fresh Legs comes in a variety of colors and styles so you can change up your look every day!
