How Graduated Compression Socks Help Provide Relief From Plantar Fasciitis

If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, you know that there is nothing worse than the pain that comes with the overstretched and strained ligaments in your feet. With several treatment options, you may have gone through trial and error trying to find the best solution. While everyone’s case is different and treatments work differently for everyone, we at SMOOTHTOE® believe in the power of graduated compression socks.

Compression socks’ main purpose is to enhance the circulation of fresh, oxygenated blood to the muscles, joints, and tendons in your legs to enable them to operate more efficiently. They act as an option for pain relief and can benefit you in your healing process. SMOOTHTOE® socks are specially designed with targeted compression points along the the foot and up the leg with a tight fit in the areas that need the most support to help promote blood flow and boost circulation. The most compression begins at the mid-arch of the foot with 20-30 mmHg and graduates to a lesser amount of compression at the knee. In other words, more squeeze at the foot and ankle less at the knee.

SMOOTHTOE® socks are a compression sock with more of an athletic look and feel, however they are slightly tighter to help create therapeutic support to relieve pain and to create foot and leg energy. Because of the way they are designed, lactic acid and other fluids are forced out of the muscle tissue and into the bloodstream, reducing muscle soreness and swelling.
SMOOTHTOE® 15-20 mmHg and 20-30 mmHg knee high style graduated compression socks are registered with the FDA as a Class I Medical Device. With our advanced technology focusing on the perfect fit, moisture control, and the ability to adapt in your environment, we create some of the best socks you’ll ever wear. They are the most comfortable graduated compression socks on the market — easier to put on and take off than other brands — machine washable and dryer safe, and carry an unmatched Replacement Warranty.

Our company’s years of research and development with leading medical facilities, athletes, and physicians has led SMOOTHTOE® (and our VO2FX® line) to our unique design. The graduated compression in SMOOTHTOE® promotes blood flow back up the leg and returns fresh, oxygenated blood, resulting in increased energy in your legs and feet.
