Quick Tips For Men’s Health Month
Face it, guys. We are not very good at seeing our doctors. It’s a fact that men seek healthcare advice and treatment far less often than women, so it’s no surprise that we aren’t as healthy as the fairer sex and we tend to die younger. But when you finally do go to the doctor, the last thing you want to hear is that you need to start wearing compression hose.
“Hose? Like PANTYhose?!”
We’re talking about compression garments — support socks and compression sleeves for the prevention and treatment of varicose veins and spider veins. Women don’t like them, and men like them even less. The thought of wearing compression hose or socks conjures up images of a your grandmother wearing thick compression hosiery on her legs to treat, large unsightly varicose and spider veins. To ask a man to wear these has gotten us some rather interesting responses ranging from “That’s for old ladies,” to “No way I’m wearing that!”
But there’s good news, guys! Today’s compression socks for men are fashionable, functional and don’t look much different from what you’re already wearing everyday. There are socks that look just like your regular socks you wear with your suits and compression sleeves that look great while you work out. And if you still end up with the classic style of compression stockings, we know a guy who will screen-print a “tattoo” on there for you.
