In a way, wearing compression tights for poor circulation might not sound like it makes sense. If you have poor blood circulation, how can “compressing” things help you increase blood flow?
The answer lies in the causes of poor circulation and the type of compression that you get from compression garments.
The Causes of Poor Circulation
Bad circulation in your arms and legs can be triggered by a number of conditions, including.
- Being overweight or obese
- Suffering an injury
In each case, the causes of poor blood or lymph circulation result in damaged blood vessels. That damage can weaken the blood vessels and make it difficult for them to maintain proper blood and lymph flow. That’s when you experience the symptoms of circulation issues, including cold hands and feet and swollen hands and feet.
How Compression Wear Improves Circulation
Instead of preventing blood flow, compression wear helps support blood and lymph vessels so they can do their job.
But not all compression wear is the same. Compression offers only one benefit for improved blood and lymph circulation.
