Compression Stockings for Athletics and Medical Recovery
Compression stockings and socks are used to help augment the return blood flow (venous blood flow) from the legs to the heart. When the veins in the legs are weakened, blood pools in the legs and causes swelling, varicose veins and other potential problems. Compression when combined with the calf muscle pump aids in returning blood towards the heart. Many people, young and elderly, male and female, can benefit from compression stockings. Today compression stockings look like normal socks and are easily incorporated into your wardrobe and lifestyle. At North Hill Foot & Ankle Clinic we will measure you for your stockings, explain the best way to put them on and take them off, as well as explain how to care for them.
