Compression Socks & Devices Q & A

What are compression socks and devices?

The team at Vascular Vein Centers offers medical-grade compression socks and devices to promote vascular health. They offer graduated compression stockings, anti-embolism stockings, and nonmedical support hosiery. 

Graduated compression stockings

Graduated compression stockings provide the highest level of compression at the ankle, which decreases toward the top of the sock. They're available in several lengths and strengths. 

 

Non-Medical support hosiery

Athletes, nurses, and other professionals who spend hours on their feet every day often wear nonmedical compression socks or sleeves. Non-Medical support hosiery promotes healthy circulation and prevents varicose veins. 

Velcro compression wraps

Velcro compression wraps are an option if you have limited hand strength or struggle to put on your compression stockings. Instead of pulling the sock over your leg, you wrap the device around your leg and attach the velcro straps.

The team at Vascular Vein Centers offer personalized advice on the best compression device to meet your needs. They also give you instructions on when and how long to wear your compression stockings. 

When should I wear compression socks or devices?

The team at Vascular Vein Centers recommends compression stockings as an early intervention for mild varicose veins or chronic venous insufficiency. They also prescribe compression devices after vein treatments such as sclerotherapy and endovenous laser-guided ablation. 

You can also wear graduated compression stockings preventively. For example, if you have a career that keeps you on your feet all day, your risk of chronic venous insufficiency increases. 

Compression stockings can help keep your veins working correctly and reduce symptoms like aching legs, cramps, and swelling. 

How do compression stockings work?

Compression stockings put pressure on your legs, which reduces the diameter of your vein and increases blood flow. This pressure helps your blood move against gravity back to your heart and prevents blood from leaking backward and pooling in your veins. 

What is the best way to put on compression socks?

Compression stockings can be tricky to put on. You might need to try a couple of techniques to find the best method for you. 

The team at Vascular Vein Centers recommends rolling the stocking down to the heel. Slide your foot into the stocking until your heel reaches the heel of the sock. Gently pull up the hosiery, unrolling it over your leg. Take care to avoid bunching or wrinkles.
