ATLANTA, GA, April 12, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SIGVARIS has become the exclusive supplier of graduated compression socks and stockings to LPGA's Brittany Lincicome. SIGVARIS and Brittany will collaborate on educating the golf community (golf professionals and recreational golfers) on all the benefits of graduated compression socks, both on and off the golf course. SIGVARIS offers both medical compression socks and stockings as well as life-style compression socks for sports, travel and professions requiring prolonged sitting or standing. "I was unaware of the differences that a graduated compression sock could make in my performance, but my recovery is quicker from my workouts and that allows me to focus on my golf game. SIGVARIS graduated compression socks work wonderfully and make my legs feel energized and lighter," says Brittany Lincicome. SIGVARIS recently wrapped up a golf trial involving graduated compression socks and their effect on golfers when used during an 18-hole golf round. An impressive 94% of the test-golfers (n=36) said they would recommend the SIGVARIS Compression Golf Socks to their fellow golfers and colleagues. Wearing compression during and after strenuous exercise or competition may help flush out lactic acid and also provide symptomatic relief of delayed onset leg muscle soreness. Graduated compression socks can also be worn to help support, by stimulating blood circulation, recovery from sports injuries. Graduated compression stockings should always be worn for longer air-travel to prevent blood stasis, and if cleared by a physician, during pregnancy to relieve swollen ankles and leg edema. SIGVARIS created http://www.athleticrecoverysock.com/ to provide athletes and weekend warriors with information on sports compression socks, as well as a forum for athletes to discuss their compression therapy experiences and results. SIGVARIS already has another high-visibility partnership in place with the Indianapolis Colts, NFL'S WINNINGEST TEAM FROM 1999-2009, which went into effect April 1st, 2010. SIGVARIS, through the Athletic Recovery line of socks, also has several strategic partnerships in place with established endurance sports organizations in North America, such as: Road Runners' Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, and Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing).
