Compression stockings have come a long way, although one thing has remained the same – they help our tired, achy or swollen legs.
Medical compression stockings provide a graduated pressure on the leg that pushes the blood from the bottom of the legs into the deep venous system, allowing blood to return to the heart. Wearing compression is an effective way to manage many chronic venous conditions. Compression can reduce swelling (edema) in the leg, ankles or feet, and it can even slow the progression of varicose veins.
Life-threatening deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a blood clot that forms in the deep veins of the legs, doesn’t always show symptoms and in a worst-case scenario, a clot can break loose and go into the lungs, which could result in a pulmonary embolism. And those that have had a DVT are vulnerable to developing post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) which can be chronic pain or swelling.
So yes, compression will help alleviate venous conditions but is there anything more one can do? As a matter of fact, yes! Drinking lots of water and maintaining a healthy body weight will help prevent hypertension and swelling. It’s important to get up and continue moving around as often as one can and to elevate your legs if you have to be seated.
You don’t have to have vein issues in order to wear compression as it improves circulation while sitting, when you’re on a long flight or while working in a sedentary job.
In the past, compression stockings weren’t always the most stylish but today compression legwear looks more like regular socks, from an array of fun colors to even enticing patterns to freshen up your wardrobe while also improving your leg health.
