I didn’t realize the importance of compression hosiery until I was flat on my back with a disc injury at the age of 22. Over the next few months, compression socks and hosiery became a game-changer for my recovery, and ultimately lead to a new understanding in energy maintenance.
Years later, I found myself in a job requiring 7-8 hours on my feet every day. Especially on days with large public events, I was upright from morning until night, sometimes working a 12-hour day with few breaks in between. Nowadays when traveling by air, I pack compression hosiery in my carry-on and find adjustment to new time zones much easier. My energy is sustained and that “travel lag” feeling is minimal. Needless to say, compression hosiery has remained a staple component in my wellness journey.
