“Venous disease is one of the most common health problems in the U.S., affecting approximately 50 percent of the population. The condition includes varicose veins, spider veins, or deep vein thrombosis.
Today, there are several outpatient, minimally invasive treatments for vein issues. One alternative is compression therapy.
Compression stockings can prevent vein problems from occurring, relieve venous symptoms such as leg swelling, fatigue or achiness and decrease the likelihood of a blood clot.”
The pressure supplied by these stockings or various compression garments facilitates healthy blood flow. Compression therapy usually utilizes “gradient” or graduated compression stockings. This means the most concentrated level of compression is at the ankle.
The pressure reduces further up the leg, enabling the veins to more efficiently transport blood back up to the heart. This prevents blood pooling in the feet and enables the management of chronic and often dangerous venous disorders such as the above mentioned DVT as well as Phlebitis, Edema and others.
