COMPRESSION SOCKS/STOCKINGS

Compression StockingCompression socks are a specialized type of hosiery made of a strong elastic fabric. With more tension than traditional socks, they provide a gradient level of pressure against the leg. This pressure is stronger towards the ankle and gradually decrease towards the top, encouraging healthy blood flow to and from the legs and feet. The gradient pressure prevent and improves the symptoms of venous conditions in the lower extremities while controlling swelling and preventing blood pooling.

Venous conditions occur when the valves within the veins are not able to close properly. These valves open and close to push blood back up to the heart but when they malfunction, blood can flow back down into the legs causing problems such as swelling, enlarged veins, blood clots, varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, venous ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis.

Compression socks are available in three different levels of support to treat patients with a variety of conditions and needs:

Available off the shelf, mild support compression socks exert a force of 15-50mmHg. Designed to relieve tired and aching legs or minor swelling or the ankle or leg, this socks are not suitable for more advanced venous conditions

Medium support compression socks provide somewhat more pressure in the range of 20-30mmHg. These socks require a medical referral and provide additional support for moderate swelling of the leg or ankle due to venous conditions or hormonal changes caused by pregnancy.

Firm support compression socks offer even more pressure, up to 40mmHg, and are designed for more severe swelling or venous conditions.

With compression socks we can:

  • Reduce the symptoms of varicose and spider veins
  • Treat chronic venous insufficiency
  • Relieve swelling caused by pregnancy
  • Reduce the swelling associated with diabetes
  • Soothe tired, aching, and fatigued legs
  • Relieve swollen feet, ankles, and legs
  • Make standing for long period more comfortable
