Why These $23 Socks are a Total Gamechanger


Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

People who've been advised to wear compression socks should check out this well-reviewed brand!Painful foot swelling is no joke. Pregnant women, long-haul-travelers, even those of us who have to stand all day on the job—they can all relate to the discomfort of this condition and have likely been told at one point or another to try wearing compression socks. Of course, not all compression socks are created equally…

That’s where this amazing pair of Physix Gear Sport compression socks comes into play. According to a recent article on Good Housekeeping, the $23 product has racked up over 5,000 five-star Amazon reviews!

In addition to helping with swelling issues, compression socks have been known to help people suffering from a variety of conditions like shin splints, plantar fasciitis, gout and varicose veins. Before turning to compression socks to treat a medical condition you should always consult your doctor—especially as compression socks can sometimes make medical conditions like peripheral neuropathy even worse—BUT, if you’ve already been advised to wear these socks, this specific pair certainly seems like a great option!
