The Opening Ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London are only 4 days away!
It was just last week I realized I have not encouraged you, my readers, if you are traveling to the Summer Olympics in London, to wear your support socks. As with any long distance travel, it is imperative that you wear compression socks or compression stockings. I cannot imagine any of our Olympic Coaches here in the US allowing their potential Olympic Champions to travel with out their support socks. Just think how terrible it would be after all their years of hard work, to be so close to their goal and develop a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis, a blood clot in a deep vein of the leg) and not be able to compete for their Olympic Medal. Just think how terrible it would be for all of you who have planned the trip of your dreams to be unable to enjoy it because you develop a DVT. Wear your support stockings when you travel! (If you don’t normally wear support hose or support socks try the Mediven Travel Socks.)
