Millions of people in Canada suffer from poor blood circulation, varicose veins and blood clots. These conditions can be uncomfortable, unsightly…and potentially deadly.
One solution is gradient compression stockings
Gradient compression stockings–also known as compression socks–improve your circulation by helping move blood from your legs back to your heart. The mechanism is simple. Compression stockings are tighter around your ankle than further up your leg, helping to push blood in your veins upward.
As a result, compression stockings are useful for preventing blood clots in legs, poor circulation, and leg and foot fatigue. Compression stockings are particularly helpful during pregnancy.
Varicose Vein Treatment
Millions of people in Canada suffer from varicose veins and compression stockings can offer relief and prevention. They are a key component of vericous vein treatment plans. The gentle squeeze of compression stockings relieve some of the pressure in your veins that causes them to swell and become painful.
Compression stockings will note cure varicose veins. But they will relieve symptoms, alleviate poor blood circulation in legs, and may prevent the development of future vein problems.
Compression Stockings for Women
One in every two women in Canada will eventually develop varicose veins. Other vascular problems, like blood clots and poor circulation in legs and feet, are increasingly common. During pregnancy, many women need extra support to prevent achy, tired legs and future circulation problems.
We have various compression socks available for men, too!
