We have been asked with increasing frequency about compression stockings and how they work.
Compression stocking used to only be available to post surgical patients or those on bed rest to prevent blood clots in the legs due to inactivity. Now, compression is used by all ages and activitiy levels to decrease fatigue in the legs, swelling in the feet and a feeling of heaviness as the work day progresses. Everyone from nurses to firemen are using compression.
Compression stockings are made out of stongly woven elastic that squeeze the leg muscles to more quickly return blood to the heart and reduce swelling and pooling in the venous system. Compression is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and higher compression levels may require a prescription.
We offer our patients RejuvaHealth stockings, and many of our staff wear them! The stockings are availabel in knee high, thigh high and panty hose lengths!
