    Compression Stockings

    There's no way to prevent varicose veins. And once they develop, there's no way for the body to cure them. Fortunately, there are simple ways to get rid of symptoms and prevent the problem from spreading.

    Regular exercise promotes healthy circulation and slows the development of new varicose veins. Diet, lifestyle changes, dietary supplements and other natural alternatives can complement support stockings and exercise.

    Other things you can do to promote good leg vein health include:

    • Avoid birth control pills
    • Eat a high-fiber diet, which prevents constipation
    • Don’t wear tight-fitting clothes
    • Elevate your legs at bedtime (about 6 to 12 inches above the heart)
    • Explore natural alternatives, such as massage therapy and dietary supplements (Vitamins C and E may help relieve swelling and other symptoms of poor circulation)
    • Avoid crossing your legs

    Wearing compression stockings is often the first approach people try before moving on to more intensive treatment. Worn all day long, compression stockings steadily squeeze your legs, which helps your veins and leg muscles move blood toward the heart. The amount of compression varies by the type and brand of stockings worn.

    Some people think compression stockings are uncomfortable and unstylish. But their reputation for not being fashionable is no longer deserved. Today, compression stockings come in a variety of strengths, styles and colors.  They are available in socks, knee-hi's, calf high, thigh high, full length and pantyhose. There are different levels and strengths of compression, from the mild to heavy surgical strength. With such a large selection, you're likely to find some you're comfortable wearing.

    We can determine the degree of compression that you require based on your condition. Call now for a FREE consultation.
