Are you flying this winter?

Compression socks are very helpful for keeping your legs healthy while traveling by car, bus, train or plane.

Blood circulation is reduced within the legs while you travel because movement is constrained with long periods of sitting.

A lack of movement can cause tired, heavy legs, pain and swelling of the ankles and feet.

Recent research from Britain is telling us that travel of any kind over 4 hours  leads to a increase in DVT- Deep Vein Thrombosis.  This means that you can develop a blood clot in the veins of your leg.

A great way to help prevent DVT is to wear graduated compression socks.

At BodyMed we carry many styles, colours and sizes for men and women.

Don’t forget to pick up a pair. You will notice a difference.
