Compressing the Pain

Compressing the Pain

By Taikhum Sadiq

Have you ever noticed the green lines that run under the skin? They are many a time clearly visible on your palm, your elbow or your calf area. They are the veins in your body which carry the impure blood from the organs back to your heart. Blood flows through them every second of your life, for as long as you live. Sometimes this blood flow is obstructed or hampered by some outer or inner factors. These results in venous disorders like edema, thrombosis, phlebitis, etc. This is when compression stockings come to the rescue. They are specialized kind of hosiery designed to improve the flow of blood in your legs and prevent these disorders. These garments save the body from pain, heaviness, inability to walk or stand for long hours thus hindering work and leading to ankle swelling. Compression stockings apply gentle pressure on the legs which helps to increase valve effectiveness. They reduce the diameter of the vein increasing the blood velocity and valve capacity.

Knee-length compression stockings not only increase circulation, but they also to prevent the formation of blood clots in the lower region of the legs. They aid in the treatment of ulcers of the lower legs. Unlike traditional dress or athletic stockings and socks, compression stockings have stronger elastics to create a major amount of pressure on the legs, ankles, and feet. Compression stockings are very tight at the ankles and gradually become less compressive toward the knees and thighs. By contracting the surface veins, arteries and muscles, they force the blood to circulate through narrower channels. Hence, the arterial pressure is increased, which causes more blood to return to the heart and less blood to pool in the feet.
