May 1, 2012 - PRLog -- PEACHTREE CITY, GA – During the first week in May, SIGVARIS representatives will team up with three running stores for the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini Marathon Expo (Ind.), the Long Island Marathon Health & Fitness Expo (N.Y.), and the Broad Street Run’s Not for Runners Only Expo (Pa.) to help educate runners nationwide about the benefits of wearing “True Graduated Compression.”

The use of compression wear is a growing trend among athletes worldwide. When athletes wear “True Graduated Compression,” compression that is tightest at the ankle, during and after exercise or competition, it helps flush out lactic acid and provides symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness. SIGVARIS manufactures a Performance Sock, a Performance Sleeve and an Athletic Recovery Sock to help athletes peak their performance and speed up their recovery time!

For these three expos, SIGVARIS is partnering with The Runners Forum (Ind.), Lynbrook Runner’s Stop (N.Y.) and Jenkintown Running Company (Pa.), three stores who all carry SIGVARIS Sports compression products.  

At each event, representatives from SIGVARIS will be on hand to properly measure and fit athletes for sports compression sleeves and socks. A proper fit is essential to ensuring the maximum health benefits when using graduated compression products. Wearing SIGVARIS socks during travel can also help prevent a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), a high-risk for high-endurance athletes. SIGVARIS representatives will also share information about how improving circulation with graduated compression may help prevent chronic venous disorders.

SIGVARIS sponsors several sports events each year to help educate athletes about the value and benefits of wearing “True Graduated Compression.” Participants who stop by SIGVARIS’ booth at any of these events may enter to win a pair of SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Socks.  Those who are unable to attend one of these events may enter to win a free pair of socks online.
