Compression Socks for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) affects the connective tissues such as the skin, joints, and blood vessel walls. EDS symptoms include joints that stretch farther than normal, or have stretchy or fragile skin. EDS symptoms and the severity can vary from person to person. Some people with EDS find that compression can help. Compression garments increase blood flow and help speed up muscle recovery after overexertion. Braces can benefit people with the hypermobility EDS type by helping to stabilize the joints to relieve pain. Talk with your doctor to determine what compression level or option is best for you.
