The Best Socks for Swollen Ankles
Congestive Heart Failure is common among the aging. Part of that causes swelling in the extremities, especially in the feet. That is why it is important to keep an eye on ankles. Sometimes socks that normally fit just fine will become binding due to swollen feet.
After finding Mom’s socks pinching her calves because of their snugness, I got her a pair of these socks. Once I saw how well they fit, I stocked up for mom.
They fit very well on the foot, but have a much gentler weave on the ankle and leg portion. They hold loosely so the swelling doesn’t cause the sock to get too tight.
They are an excellent substitute for any future sock purchases, one I can’t recommend enough. You know how it feels when a sock fits too tight. Your loved one might not be able to express that, but one look at their ankles might speak clearly.
I LOVE THEM! Better yet, Mom’s legs love them! The diabetic style sock has a cuff at the top that is so much looser and less binding. It is snug enough to keep the sock pulled up so their lower leg still stays warm, but not so snug that it will cause undue tightness.
The number one goal I have for Mom for as many years as she has left is her comfort. I’m so impressed with how these socks help.
Dr. Scholl’s socks are available for men as well, as you see featured below. There are a few color choices, depending on style. You can order the mid calf height or shorter ankle height. We use both.
It’s one of my best finds! It was startling to see how tight her old socks were on her legs. These bring huge relief.
