Medically endorsed SIGVARIS proudly announces its endorsement by pro-basketball star Carl Landry.
Jan. 13, 2011 - PRLog -- PEACHTREE CITY, GA – SIGVARIS is pleased to announce that Carl Landry, Sacramento forward, has become a fan of SIGVARIS’ Active Therapy Line prompting him to become an official endorser of SIGVARIS’ athletic socks.

“It’s exciting for SIGVARIS that professional athletes worldwide have seen for themselves the value of wearing true graduated compression,” says Jason Kern, product manager of SIGVARIS North America. “It’s rewarding to see high profile players like Carl Landry, Soccer’s Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, Joseph Addai (running back for the Indianapolis Colts) and Michael Turner (running back for the Atlanta Falcons) endorsing our socks. We are thrilled that we could use what we have learned by being the global leader in medical compression therapy to help athletes.”

The use of compression wear is a growing trend in athletics. Wearing true graduated compression, compression that is tightest at the ankle, during and after exercise or competition can help flush out lactic acid and provide symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness. SIGVARIS manufactures both a Performance Sock and an Athletic Recovery Sock to help athletes peak their performance and speed up their recovery time!

“After 40-plus minutes against some of the top athletes in the world, nothing feels better on the long ride home than my SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery socks,” Landry says. “I have used similar products in the past, but they didn't help my legs after a game like these do. I am excited to be partnering with SIGVARIS because I know other athletes that try these socks are going to experience great results."

SIGVARIS created and to provide consumers with information about the socks in the Active Therapy line.
