Symptoms of circulatory problems may include numbness, tingling, extremity pain, and cramps.

How Compression Stockings help Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that are seen beneath the skin. They mostly appear in the legs and feet. When the valves become weak or damaged, blood is collected in the veins instead of flowing back to the heart. Sitting or standing for a prolonged period can cause blood to pool in the leg veins and increase the pressure within the veins. Compression stockings help to improve circulation and reduce pain and discomfort. It also stops varicose veins from getting worse. So, the physician may prescribe stockings as the first course of action. He will decide what level of Compression has to be given based on the condition.

Things To Keep In Mind While Using Compression Stockings

  • A compression stocking is a prescription garment and should be worn after consulting a physician. For the nonmedical purpose, you can buy them over the counter.
  • Make sure your stockings are exerting proper Compression. An inappropriate garment will not deliver the compression level necessary to address your condition.
  • If irritation occurs or you notice any other abnormality, contact a doctor.
  • If you wear them incorrectly or they are wrinkled, they might cause a problem. You can take the help of donning and doffing aids while putting and taking off. Use rubber gloves that provide the best possible grip on your stockings and protect the fabric from being damaged by rings or fingernails. You can use corn starch or baby powder so that the stocking slides up very easily.
  • Compression stockings must be worn all day long and taken off at night or directed by the physician. Put them on again first thing in the morning when you have the least swelling in the legs.
  • Compliance is very important. Otherwise, you will not get the desired results.
  • Buy two garments at a time, one that you wear and one for washing. Follow the washing instructions. Hand washes your stockings and air dry them away from direct heat.
  • They should be replaced every 3 to 6 months after your physician monitors your progress and measures your legs again.
