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.

Where To Buy Men’s Support Socks And Compression Gear

With so many different brands of men’s support socks and compression gear on the market, it isn’t always easy to know which compression stockings are the best ones for you. At Vein Specialists of the South, we stock an assortment of the best brands and styles on the market.  Our team is ‘all in’ and wear our compression socks on a daily basis.

The Sigvaris brand is the number 1 compression hose company in the world. Their North American / USA headquarters is in Peachtree City right here in Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. From the business casual style for men that offers a comfortable feel and professional look to cotton socks that are tailored for men, Sigvaris knows what it takes to produce a quality product. These socks are soft enough for everyday wear yet durable enough to withstand the wear and tear you are going to put them through. And they work for the prevention and treatment of varicose veins and spider veins, which is why we recommend them to many patients as part of their treatment program.

Why Purchase From Vein Specialists Of The South?

If you are curious about where to buy men’s support socks, look into purchasing your compression gear at our Middle Georgia vein clinic. Our team of trained professionals can make sure you get just what you need. We will go through and help you with sizing and the different types of compression stockings to find the one that is going to help treat your specific venous health condition. Our goal is to make sure you purchase something that is going to work for your lifestyle and treat your vein disease.  Yes, you can find compression garments in your local drug store or order these online, but without guidance from a vein specialist, you could end up with products that don’t help or make your condition worse.


If you have a health savings account, you can use it to make the purchase and save yourself even more money. Don’t waste time ordering these products online when you can’t predict their quality. Order from your local vein specialists and rest assured that you are getting everything you need and more. Our team is ready to help in any way we can. Contact our friendly and helpful staff or stop in one of our two convenient Middle Georgia locations in Downtown Macon and Warner Robins to find out how compression gear can help with your varicose veins.
