I read an article written by a nurse and she states that tired legs can actually make your brain tired too.
According to this study, prolonged standing can lead to lower extremity discomfort and fatigue, which has been linked to a decline in level of alertness and concentration. That means it is even more important to wear compression stockings to keep your blood pumping properly, not only for your own comfort, but for your focus too!
Many medical professionals suffer from lower leg pain, fatigue, edema and varicose veins, especially nurses.
Wearing Ultimate Therapy Compression Hosiery may be what you need to keep you feeling alert until the end of your shift.
We suggest our women’s dress socks, 15 – 20 mmHg compression, available in black and white.
Nurses, keep your legs feeling good by trying a pair of compression socks on your next shift! Take care of yourself while you are taking care of others!
