We offer a large variety of Medical Compression Stockings that help improve venous function by reducing swelling in the extremities. These garments are often prescribed by your health care practitioner, for varicose veins, lower extremity swelling, pregnancy, and lymphedema.
How Compression Therapy Stockings Work
The pressure the compression stockings put on your legs helps blood vessels by allowing the arteries that deliver oxygen-rich blood to your muscles to relax, so blood flows freely. They assist the veins in pushing blood back to your heart.
Compression stockings can help your legs from getting tired and achy, as well as ease swelling in feet and ankles and prevent and treat spider and varicose veins.
They may even stop you from feeling light-headed or dizzy when you stand up.
Because the blood keeps moving, it’s harder for it to pool in your veins and make a clot. If a clot forms and breaks free, it can travel with your blood and get stuck somewhere dangerous, like your lungs. Clots also make it harder for blood to flow around them, and that can cause swelling, discolored skin, and other problems.
