Relieve aching legs with compression stockings

Leg pain can be a hindrance for those who prefer an active lifestyle. In this blog post, we discuss the causes of leg pain, the symptoms you may experience, and how compression socks from STOX Energy Socks can offer an effective solution for alleviating this discomfort.

    What causes leg pain?

    Leg pain can have various causes. Some common examples include:

    • Muscle fatigue due to excessive exercise.
    • Poor or reduced blood circulation in the legs.
    • Prolonged standing or sitting.
    • Age-related issues, including varicose veins.

    To choose the appropriate treatment, it is essential to identify the specific cause of the pain. We recommend seeking advice from a (family) doctor.

    Symptoms of leg pain:

    The symptoms of leg pain can vary. In addition to the pain you experience, you may have a feeling of fatigue or restlessness in the legs. Some people may experience calf muscle cramps. Swollen or thick ankles and feet can also occur.

    STOX Energy Socks are advanced compression socks that relieve pain and combat leg fatigue. Below, learn how they work:

    Compression technology:

    STOX Energy Socks feature gradual compression that promotes blood circulation in the legs. This pressure starts at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the upper thigh. This creates an upward flow of blood in the veins, stimulating the return of blood to the heart. As a result, waste products are removed more efficiently, and the muscles are simultaneously supplied with oxygen-rich blood. This reduces the sensation of painful and tired legs.


    The socks provide additional support to the muscles, reducing fatigue and the risk of cramps.

    Temperature regulation:

    The temperature-regulating materials used in STOX Energy Socks keep your legs warm in winter and cool in summer. This allows you to wear the socks comfortably throughout the whole day.

    Preventing varicose veins:

    Because the socks enhance blood circulation, STOX Energy Socks assist in preventing varicose veins, especially for individuals who have to stand or sit for extended periods due to their occupation.

    In summary, STOX Energy Socks' advanced compression technology effectively relieves the sensation of tired and painful legs. Try our compression socks and experience the difference!
