Medical Compression Socks & Stockings
Do you have issues with poor venous return, varicose veins, or even diabetes? Medical compression stockings may be able to help with your condition.
Medical compression socks create a pressure gradient, with the most pressure around the ankle to the least pressure toward the cuff of the sock. While gravity continues to pull fluid and blood down the leg, the stockings create the opposite effect, encouraging blood and fluid back up the leg and thereby improving blood flow in the area.
Medical compression socks are often recommended to help with certain medical conditions, such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). DVT is a condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in the veins of your leg. The condition represents a serious risk, as a clot can travel up the leg to the lungs and sometimes cause a pulmonary embolism.
Medical-grade compression stockings have been shown to help prevent the formation of blood clots in your leg, in patients with DVT. They can also assist patients who are managing Post-Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS) as well.
In most cases, medical compression socks are prescribed by your doctor. If you have a prescription, we will start by taking a series of measurements to ensure that the stockings fit perfectly. For those with a unique anatomical shape, we can also have custom compression stockings made especially for you.
Athletic Compression Socks & Stockings
Are you looking for a way to improve your athletic performance, speed up your recovery time after games or events, and help prevent injuries? Athletic compression socks or stockings may be able to help you reach a new peak.
