Support Stockings: Reducing Your Risk for Venous Disease?
Tired, Achy Legs?
Prolonged Sitting? Spider Veins?
If you answered “Yes” to any of the questions, you may be at risk for developing varicose veins and other venous disorders. Approximately 90% of leg disorders originate within the veins. Vein problems progressively worsen over time and can affect your health and well-being for the rest of your life. Common venous disorders include venous insufficiency, varicose veins, phlebitis, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), skin discoloration, and leg ulcers. Visit The North America Thrombosis Forum at http://www.natfonline.org for more information about DVT's.
Medical compression stockings work by applying firm continuous graduated pressure to the veins and muscles within the legs. Compression therapy focuses on health problems associated with poor circulation either due to weak vein walls or blockage of some type. Graduated support stockings, commonly referred to as surgical stockings, are non-invasive treatment methods that can help relieve pain and swelling (edema), improve mobility, and restore lost energy associated with venous disorders. If you have tired, aching swollen legs or start to see the beginning of varicose veins, it is time to learn how to improve the health of your venous circulation through prevention.
Compression Stockings and Lymphedema
Medical compression garments are a key component in lymphedema therapy. These garments help maintain the result achieved in reducing the edema. Medical compression garments are more stretchable than the bandages, which make them more pleasing to wear and allow easier application.
Maternity Pantyhose and Pregnancy
From the onset of pregnancy, your legs, hips and back should be supported. Consistent wear of graduated compression maternity pantyhose keeps veins healthy and ensures mobility without discomfort. Leg problems during pregnancy are mainly caused by an increase in hormonal levels, mainly progesterone, increased blood volume, increase blood coagulability and increased pressure on the pelvic veins caused by the growing fetus. Up to 20% of women develop visible varicose veins during pregnancy. However, hidden vein damage can occur during pregnancy without any visible signs; it can lie undiagnosed for many years until the normal aging process allows “previously weakened” veins to develop into serious problems later in life.
