AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED COMPRESSION
Pain and Swelling From Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency is a condition that occurs when the veins in your legs don’t allow blood to flow properly. This can cause your blood to flow backwards and then to pool in your legs. Someone with venous insufficiency may experience pain, swelling, and even leg ulcers. There are a number of things that can cause venous insufficiency being overweight, pregnant, or previous damage to the leg from injury or surgery. Suffering from venous insufficiency puts a patient at higher risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Venous Improvement and Relief From Pain
Compression stockings help to press the veins encouraging better blood flow. In addition the increase in blood flow from compression will help to reduce the swelling that accompanies venous insufficiency, thus reducing pain. Most importantly, wearing compression stockings will ensure that venous insufficiency does not get any worse, as well as preventing deep vein thrombosis.
