Who should wear compression stockings?
Those who use compression therapy usually need it because they are suffering from certain, somewhat common, conditions. It could be venous disease or insufficiency, lymphedema, symptomatic varicose veins, venous stasis ulcers, post thrombotic syndrome, or because you are forced to lead a sedentary lifestyle. Regardless of the reason, though, you wear compression stockings to help reduce blood pooling in the venous circulation. It is helpful to know about compression in order to understand how all of the exercises below are going to improve the results you enjoy from wearing those special garments.
How do compression stockings work?
Compression stockings provide external compression and thus limit the ability of distensible veins to distend. Therefore, narrowed varicose veins will limit their ability to hold bold, especially if there is incompetent or leaky vein valves, as in patients with venous insufficiency. Published studies have also shown that after 15 minutes of wearing compression stockings, there is improvement the oxygenation of the skin (cutaneous oxygenation).
What is graduated compression?
Patients with clinically significant venous insufficiency report improved symptoms when they wear graduated compression stocking - less pain, less heaviness in the legs, less aching of the legs, less tiredness of the legs, less cramping and throbbing of the legs and less leg swelling at the end of the day. The term graduated compression means that by virtue of graduation (more tapered near the ankle) and larger in the leg and thigh, the graduated compression socks propel blood housed in the leg veins up towards the heart as you walk. Graduated compression stockings are used in patients with chronic venous insufficiency, in patients after surgery to reduce clot formation, after sclerotherapy for telangiectasias and varicose veins, and in patients who want to prevent the development of spider veins, varicose veins or recurrent varicose veins or venous stasis ulcers.
