Tired Achy Legs From Standing
Jobs that require you to stand for long periods of time such as nurses, cashiers, and intense physical laborers, can cause particularly painful leg symptoms like fatigued muscles, cramps, spasms, and swelling. When we stand, gravity is working against our circulatory system by pushing our blood toward the ground. Occasionally, some people's bodies have a difficult time returning this blood to the heart and it tends to pool in the legs instead.
Compression socks help to recirculate that blood back up to the heart, relieving pain and even symptoms from orthostatic intolerance syndromes.
