What are Compressional Devices and Socks?
Your team at Vascular Vein Centers offers medical-grade graduated care through compressional socks and stockings, Velcro compression wraps, and other devices used to treat vein complications and to facilitate putting on and taking off compression stockings and socks.
Velcro Compression Stockings
Graduated compression stockings are designed to deliver medical-grade graduated compression stockings and socks. A Velcro compression wrap and device facilitates treatment of conditions affecting your veins.
About Velcro Compression Wraps
A Velcro compression wrap is best for significant swelling involving the top of your foot. If you have advanced skin changes around the ankle and the top of your foot, getting a wrap on is easier than stockings.
If you have hand arthritis, back issues, or obesity, Velcro compression wraps make your recovery much simpler than the compressional stockings. The Vascular Vein Centers involve you to facilitate the application of compressional wraps in a perfect fit.
About Graduated Compression Stockings
Graduated compression stockings ensure that you have the best pressure at your ankle to support swelling at the top of your foot. If you have ulcers in the ankle area or advanced skin changes, you can get a stocking with more compression and comfort.
Medical compression stockings deliver adequate support for weak veined walls to aid in pumping blood flowing to your heart and legs in a safe proportion to avoid swelling in your lower leg.
When to Wear Compression?
You should wear compression items if you’re to be on your feet for a long duration, for example in jobs like chefs, beauticians, medical providers, and teachers. If you are prone to swelling, you can wear compression when traveling.
Compression doesn’t prevent spider and varicose veins but plays an essential role in shaping its progression. After laser or sclerotherapy, compression is completed to decrease chances of new varicosities over time.
How Do Compression Stockings Work?
Graduated compression stockings squeeze your legs, decrease the diameter of varicose veins, support calf pumps, and prevent pooling of blood and swelling at the ankle level.
