Do you have…
If you are currently experiencing any of these conditions, you may have a venous disorder and could benefit from the use of graduated compression hosiery.
Compression hosiery is designed to exert the greatest amount of pressure at the ankle and gradually decrease in pressure towards the top of the stocking. This reverse gradient creates a force that pushes blood back towards the heart, against the forces of gravity.
To be most effective, compression socks or stockings should be put on at the start of the day, and removed just before you go to bed. This will help reduce pain and swelling in the legs and ankles.
Compression therapy is not right for everyone. If you have arterial deficiencies, congestive heart failure, ischemia or other serious medical conditions, you should only wear compression hosiery after being evaluated by your physician and only under their close supervision.
