Home / Benefits of Lasso

 

Lasso socks use a new type of targeted compression, based on the science of ankle tape, AS WELL as graduated compression throughout the sock. This is what that means for you.

 

BENEFITS OF TARGETED COMPRESSION:

Lasso socks use targeted compression to reinforce the ligaments and tendons in the ankle that help during motion. Lasso socks may help:

  • Prevent ankle sprains
  • Provide support to the ankle joint during motion
  • Provide extra support to the ankle during an injury
  • Reduce recovery time
  • Improve athletic performance or motion

 

BENEFITS OF GRADUATED COMPRESSION:

Graduated compression and compression garments have typically been prescribed by doctors to help with blood flow and to treat low blood pressure or plantar fasciitis. Some studies indicate Lasso compression socks can reduce pain or help with recovery from an ankle sprain. Lasso socks may help:

  • Provide support for muscle stiffness, soreness, and pain
  • Reduce recovery time
  • Support improved circulation

 

If you have any more questions, here's all of the studies that we based our science on. You can also reach out to us via social media or through the website and we will help answer whatever questions you have.
