For our vein procedures we require patients to wear compression stockings in order to provide external support to vein walls and muscle conjunction. The compression stocking help to minimize pain and swelling after our vein procedures. We sell compression stocking in our office, please call for any additional questions you may have.
The compressive fabric of the stocking applies pressure to the veins and tissue, thereby improving the venous return flow and reducing swelling and painful obstructions. Compression stocking are an important aid in medical therapies but can also be used as a preventative measure in standing occupations or against travel thromboses.
