Compressing the Pain

Compressing the Pain
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 that 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 hosiery designed to improve blood flow in your legs and prevent these disorders. These garments save the body from pain, heaviness, and 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 also 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 lot of pressure on the legs, ankles, and feet. Compression stockings are tight at the ankles and gradually become less compressive toward the knees and thighs. Contracting the surface veins, arteries, and muscles forces 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.

Choosing the Best Compression Socks

We have a number of compression stockings that you can choose from. Please be sure to choose the ones that fit your needs perfectly. The BSN Jobst Womens Ultrasheer Supportwear Knee High 8-15 mmHg Mild Compression Stockings are the right kind of hosiery for any occasion and fuse the sheer appeal of fine fashion garments with durability. These stockings enhance circulation, prevent swelling, and improve leg health. They feature reinforced toe, which enhances durability, and fine yarns to provide a sheer, elegant look.

Another good example is the Juzo Soft 30-40 mmHg Thigh High Firm Compression Stockings have exclusive Fibersoft technology, providing ultimate softness in a breathable yet durable support hose. Inconspicuous opaque knit conceals blemishes or varicose veins. It is ideal for chronic venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis, venous ulcers, and severe edema or lymphedema.
