The development of blood clots is a serious risk to the life of an expecting mother and their unborn child says the Miami fitness company, finding that doctors will often recommend at-risk women wear full-length compression socks to decrease this risk.

Many pregnant women work throughout their pregnancy, and many, in fields like nursing, chiropractic and physical therapy are required to be on their feet for most of the day.

According to the report, long hours of standing or walking, combined with the weight of a growing baby and the resulting 50% increase in blood volume, puts extra pressure on legs and can lead to swelling, discomfort and the risk of blood clots.

The increased volume of blood in a pregnant woman’s body can cause blood to pool, placing stress on the veins and arteries through which blood circulates.

The report, entitled “Should You Wear Compression Socks While Pregnant?” says compression socks can prevent swelling from occurring in the first place by boosting circulation and allowing blood to be pumped back to the heart faster, which means nutrients and oxygen can also be circulated throughout the body at a faster pace.

In the report, Physix Gear Sport also points to a study that shows pain and swelling improved after just one week of wearing 18 to 21 mmHg compression socks and another that showed wearing 22 mmHg socks, controlled pressure and swelling in pregnant patients.

The fitness and health industry experts note that some doctors may recommend certain patients wear extra heavy-duty compression sleeves (40 mmHg or greater), however, these compression socks are usually only obtained through a prescription and through specialized providers, to ensure proper usage.

Pregnant women, especially, may be interested in calf compression sleeves, and full-length compression socks. The socks work by applying graduated compression which means the socks are tighter at the ankle and become less tight as it moves toward the knee.

An independent Amazon user review shows the Physix brand of compression socks measuring 20 to 30 mmHg as a best seller on the platform.

With the release of this report, Physix Gear Sport offers important information to expecting mothers that could help reduce the risk of developing pregnancy related blot clots.
