Compression Stockings

If you suffer from a venous disorder such as edema, phlebitis, or thrombosis, compression stockings may be able to help. These stockings use a specialized elastic material that puts pressure on the limbs in order to improve circulation and increase blood flow, helping relieve a variety of conditions.

Compression stockings are made from an elastic material that is stronger than the elastic you find in other types of stockings and socks. It’s designed to compress the limbs and exert pressure on the legs, ankles, and feet. This in turn improves blood circulation and flow to the heart, allowing arterial pressure to increase.

Many individuals who work in jobs that require them to stand for long periods of time utilize compression stockings to help blood circulation and prevent muscle soreness or injury. They can also treat a variety of underlying conditions such as edema, phlebitis, thrombosis, and general discomfort.

At Derry Village Physio, our specialists will help you get fitted for compression stockings that will help alleviate a variety of symptoms and conditions. We’ll work with you to provide you with the correct product and ensure that you are educated on how to use them.
