"Compression is for old people" (or how strong can bias be)
Let's start by breaking prejudices that push us in the opposite direction of what would be good for us if we did not listen to them.
We often think that blood circulation deficiency are an elderly people's disease. How much wrong can we be ? Among the most concerned people:
- 26 % are men
- 57% are women
- 10% are women under 25 years-old.
A strong health for strong legs !
Wearing compression is NOT for the disabled, on the contrary ! Causes for blood circulation deficiency are multiple but mostly come from a sedentary lifestyle, no matter your age. Wearing compression products before the first signs of blood circulation deficiency actually show up could help decrease risks of developing more severe diseases such as varicose veins or thrombosis.
