Are Compression Socks the Right Choice?

CAN YOU TELL THAT MAYBE IT’S TIME YOU CONSIDER SEEKING HELP TO MANAGE A VENOUS DISORDER, BUT ARE NERVOUS TO DO ANYTHING THAT MAY INCLUDE INJECTIONS?

There is no need to go into worry overdrive. You may be an ideal candidate to use compression therapy.

What is compression therapy? Compression therapy is simply wearing compression socks. Sounds simple enough, right? If the compression socks are of a high quality, they can actually cause blood flow to increase and your veins to gain strength. This is because the pressure created by the socks stretches out the vein walls, which greatly affects the amount of circulation in the legs. Of course, along with better circulation comes a decreased amount of swelling. Using compression socks might even prevent the formation of spider veins.

Are compression socks for you? Compression socks were designed for people who suffer from a venous disease or disorder. This could be a much less intrusive treatment of your venous disorders or diseases. Compression socks are most effective when you have some that are the correct compression class. So even though it could be tempting to just go out and grab a pair you saw in the store, make sure you know exactly what you are looking for. Check with a physician who may suggest the right compression class. A doctor may also help point you in the direction of brands that produce high-quality stockings.
