Varicose Veins. Convenience of Stockings for Varicose Veins in Summer Socks for Summer and vascularization.
Stop using your compression stockings in the summer?
Experts indicate that it is a bad idea.
It is usual for people with varicose veins or other problems that are related to poor venous return to neglect their use when the summer season arrives.
When doctors believe that it is precisely when they are most needed.
This is the advantage of the use of socks of a natural fiber.
Such as bamboo and cotton, precisely not incompatible with summer temperatures, which thermoregulate correctly, avoiding the uncomfortable “encapsulation” produced by synthetic fibers.
Heat produces vasodilatation or increased venous volume (more temperature plus dilation).
When the semilunar valves are closed it causes the blood flow to go upwards, and that increase in dilatation or vasodilation by the external temperature, prevents the optimal closing of said valves, and therefore an adequate return of blood flow from the feet ascending
When you walk in the summer, or when you are practicing any sport, the musculature will push the blood down, which in the lower extremities will produce fluid accumulation.
Increasing the vascular pressure, deforming the veins of the lower part of the body, what contributes and increases the disorders related to venous return.
This is why vascular specialists indicate that the description of compression stockings or socks is made when the venous elasticity or its own valve system is deteriorated and therefore its effectiveness is reduced.

Only gradual compression can properly improve blood flow and muscle oxigenation, pushing the returning blood from the bottom of your legs towards your heart.
Their 25mmHg certified gradual compression will improve blood return and oxygenation on your legs.
Relieve heavy and aching legs on daily use, and reduce muscle fatigue and vibration during sport practice.
Comfort is therefore a determining factor to promote its use in the summer, which is precisely when the “threat of vasodilation” besieges the correct venous return.
If it is favored by socks or compression stockings that promote the sensation of freshness.
The discomfort disappears and this “threat” is mitigated by being able to comfortably use the compression element.
It is also suitable to promote its comfortable use.
Since there are patients who can not withstand strong compression in summer, the use of medium compression in place, and even use them in extreme heat waves for example during the morning until the temperature increases in excess with the summer heat.
This is precisely the success and advantage of socks and stockings of medium compression (25mmHg) in natural fibers of bamboo and cotton.
Which should be used throughout the year, and especially in summer as advised by medical experts.
