HOW DO COMPRESSION STOCKINGS WORK DURING SPORTS?
JOBST® compression stockings provide graduated compression that is tightest at the ankles and gradually less constrictive towards the knees. They assist the calf muscles to perform their pumping action in the veins more efficiently. The better the veins are perfused, the more oxygen and therefore more nutrients, such as magnesium and calcium is supplied to the muscles.
