Medical Compression Stockings

Medical Compression stockings are specialized hosiery that is designed to improve venous lymph and blood flow to the legs and feet. The specialized compression socks or hostelries are elastic garments worn around the legs, compressing the limb and exerting a comfortable pressure against the legs and feet.

This gradient pressure promotes better blood flow which in return helps to control swelling, varicose veins, leg fatigue, and other problematic leg conditions. Unlike traditional athletic socks, compression stockings use stronger elastic to create significant pressure that yields relief and better health.

Compression stockings are often fully covered under most insurance health plans. We will provide all the required paperwork for insurance reimbursement.

The medical gradient compression stockings that are offered at our center have different compression and support levels. Depending on your condition, mild, moderate or firm support may be ideal for you. At all levels, the graduated compression configuration in the stockings softly massages the leg muscles throughout the day.

What Is Compression Therapy?

How does graduated compression therapy help with the management of venous problems?

As a person walks, the contraction and relaxation of the calf muscles around the veins aid in moving blood towards the heart. The external graduated compression stockings act as a layer of muscle by gently squeezing the stretched vein walls together, allowing the valves to close. The cavity of the vein is reduced, thereby restoring blood flow to a normal state and aiding overall circulation.

To be most effective, the socks or stockings should be put on at the start of your day and removed before you go to bed. Some people have an inherited weakness of the vein walls or valves which creates extra challenges to venous return. Wearing graduated compression stockings is vital for the prevention and treatment of varicose veins and other circulatory problems.
