​Many people can benefit from wearing compression socks. Most don’t realize it. Compression socks are not exactly a clothing item you would think about, but perhaps you should. The healing properties behind compression garments need to come to the forefront of good health practices.

Hi, my name is Jake Owen. During the day I am a qualified Physiotherapist but at night, I like to create informative articles to help people make good choices when it comes to compression wear. As a Physiotherapist, I have worked with a many types of people (athletes, soon-to-be moms, and the elderly) and have come to know the ins and outs of compression wear along with the purposes, benefits and downfalls. If you have any questions at all, please let me know and I'll do my best to help you.
