Patients suffering from the effects of venous insufficiency are highly benefited though the application of compression therapy paired with regular use of compression garments. Varicose veins prevent the proper flow of blood along the leg muscles which can result on pain, swelling and in some cases loss of feeling.
Compression therapy paired with compression garments for varicose veins is the done through the application of external pressure. This pressure is placed on the limbs via the compression stocking. The regulated pressure of the stockings allows venous pressure to be reduced and circulation to increase as a result. Since the heart works in opposition of gravity to pump blood from the heart and up through the legs, compression stockings help eases the load in the circulatory system by supporting the natural contraction and relaxation of the muscles in the calf that support the leg veins.
