Medical grade stockings assist with blood circulation by helping veins return blood back to the heart by applying the proper amount of pressure to the subcutaneous layer of the leg’s skin. This prevents leg veins from overfilling with blood, which can cause problems as Varicose Veins.
Compression stockings can assist the legs from experiencing aches and fatigue. They also can reduce swelling in the feet and ankles and help in the prevention and treatment of varicose veins and spider veins.
Because the blood is able to continue moving, compression stockings make it more difficult for the blood to pool in the veins and make a clot.
Stockings are available in different levels of compression. Our chiropodist at the Brampton Foot Clinic will assess you and determine the pressure of compression to be used depending on the type and severity of your symptoms.
