COMPRESSION STOCKINGS

Specially fitted compression stockings are tight at the feet with a gradually
looser fit on the leg. Because there are different types, it’s best to use the
kind that your doctor recommends and that will work best for you.

For who?

Whether you’re an athlete, a pregnant woman, a frequent traveler or someone with a special condition, consider compression therapy. Gradient compression not only helps relieve symptoms but can also help reduce the risk of further complications.

Chronic Venous Disease

Blood return from the legs occurs mainly through the deep veins. Within the veins, especially those of the legs, are valves. Venous valves are bicuspid (two) flap-like structures made of elastic tissue. The valves function to keep blood moving in one direction.

Pregnancy

Women who are pregnant or who have just given birth are at increased risk for blood clots. That risk actually increases to about 20-fold in the weeks immediately following childbirth and is at its highest — a risk of 100-fold — in the first week after the baby is born.

Physical Activity

Physical exercise is good for mind, body, and spirit. Furthermore, sports, and mainly team sports, are good for learning accountability, dedication, and leadership, among many other traits.

Occupational Swelling

The experience of legs that swell at the end of a working day is the result of a physiologic phenomenon. It is caused by extravasation of fluid from the venules because of a steadily increased venous pressure in the dependent regions of the body.

Travel

Long-distance travel, whether by car, train, or airplane can be associated with leg discomfort and increased risk. Lack of leg movement gives way to swelling of the feet and legs.

Venous Leg Ulcer

Compression can be considered the cornerstone of the therapy of venous leg ulcers. As indicated by numerous studies, adequate compression supports venous ow and shows significant effects on deep venous hemodynamics – ultimately providing large improvements in pain, mobility, and quality of life for the patient.

Diabetes

Edema is a risk factor for venous and diabetes-related foot ulcers among patients with diabetes, as well as being implicated in reducing healing for existing diabetes-related foot ulcers.

Compression Management Treatment

Compression stockings:

  • Help improve blood flow.
  • Help keep fluid from pooling in the legs.
  • Help relieve symptoms caused by varicose veins, skin ulcers, and
    deep vein thrombosis.
  • Help prevent problems caused by things like skin ulcers.
  • Will help the most if you wear them every day while you’re awake,
    especially while you’re on your feet.

How do you use compression stockings?
Compression stockings can be a part of your daily routine. If they fit right,
they should be snug but comfortable.
It’s best to wear them all the time, unless you are bathing or sleeping. Plan
on replacing your stockings every 4 to 6 months.
At first, putting on a pair of compression stockings can be tricky. But with
some practice, you’ll find what works for you.

Here are some tips:
To put them on

  • Do it early in the morning, when you have the least swelling in your
    legs.
  • Sit in a chair with a back. This gives you something to lean against as
    you put on the stockings.
  • Hold the top of the stocking with one hand. Then with your other
    hand, reach inside the stocking and push your arm all the way in until
    you reach the end and can grab the toe.
  • When you have a firm grip on the toe, pull your hand back up through
    the stocking, turning it inside out, but leaving the tips of your fingers in
    the toe of the stocking.
  • Put your toes into the toe of the stocking, and gently roll and slide it
    back over your heel. Then use your finger tips or palms to slowly roll
    and slide the stocking all the way up your leg.
  • Be careful not to grab and pull at the top of the stocking, because that
    can cause it to rip or tear.
