Some of the signs are painful, achy, tired heavy legs, and varicose and spider veins.

  • Pregnancy brings many changes to a woman’s body, increased blood volume and fluid among them.  This fluid may cause swelling in legs, ankles and feet. Hormonal changes and weight gain contribute to an increased incidence of varicose veins during pregnancy. With daily wear compression stocking counteract this swelling protecting against varicose veins by applying gentle pressure to inhibit this fluid accumulation that produces tired aching legs and excessive swelling.
  • Travellers/Professional Drivers spend extended time seated on planes or in other vehicles are at an increased risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (Blood Clots).
  • Police/Ambulance/Physicians/Nurses/Restaurant Workers/Teachers and anyone who works hard on their feet face the same DVT risk as those who are seated for extended periods of time.
  • Lymphedema: Consistent compression garment wear is an effect tool in lymphedema management.

compression stockings socksHow does it work?

 

Compression socks (garments) apply a graduated compression to your leg to manage venous disorders.  The highest amount of pressure is in the ankle portion of  the garment and pressure gradually decreases as you move up the stocking.  This promotes blood flow back towards your heart and assists even damaged valves and veins.  These compression levels are quantified as compression “classes” and are measured in mmHG (millimeter of Mercury).

Compression garments are also an effective tool in the treatment of Lymphedema, assisting lymph flow in damaged Lymphatic Systems damaged through cancer treatments, trauma or other causes.

“I’ve worn compression socks for many years but my new Silver compression socks are soft and comfortable and give me the same results. I’m very happy with them.”

Ron – Juzo Silver Wearer
