Most destination trips these days are done by airplane. Some people have a fear of
flying; the process stresses others out. Airlines and airports do not make it easy on
us, the modern flyers. We must arrive hours before our flight only to be fined with
baggage fees. This is followed by a lengthy lineup that leads to an all-to- thorough
security check. Once we are through that unwelcoming procedure, we wait for the
plane, perhaps the only moment of solace in what is always a long travel day. Once

May I suggest one more ritual? On your travel day, wear your pair of Dr. Segal’s
Compression Socks. The socks will not guarantee a no-hassle trip through security,
nor will it guarantee a discount on baggage fees. However, it will make the airplane
ride a little more comfortable, and your body will thank you for it. When flying, it is
true that your legs swell from a change of pressure, and leg pain is also very
common. Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks can reduce the swelling of legs as well as
ease the leg pain produced from extended periods of decreased mobility.
Not only that, but you are actually at risk of blood clots while flying! The low cabin
pressure, combined with decreased mobility, dehydration, and the intake of alcohol
all contribute to increasing your risk of blood clots. Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks
are proven to decrease your risk of developing travel-related blood clots.
So, whether you sit, stretch, breathe, or medicate to prepare for your trip, it is
important for your health to add the new ritual of wearing Dr. Segal’s Compression
Socks to your long travel days.
