Support and Compression Stockings

Tired, heavy legs, swollen ankles, varicose veins and skin changes, can be signs of a chronic venous disease and insufficiency. Wearing compression stocking is central in the treatment of venous disorders.

Compression stockings improve circulation of the blood by exerting a pressure on the veins to help push it up towards the heart. They are often recommended for the people who suffer from venous insufficiency. Wearing compression stockings makes it possible to relieve symptoms and to prevent the consequences of the venous insufficiency. 

  • Feeling of tired, heavy legs
  • Painful calves

  • Skin ulcers
  • Varicose veins on the legs

Pregnant women can also benefit from wearing compression stockings. The same goes for people who work long hours standing up as well as for people who travel by airplane.

Your physician can help determine your underlying condition and determine the correct treatment for you.
