Compression Stockings Therapy

Compression Stockings Therapy

Compression therapy can be an effective way to alleviate some of the symptoms of varicose veins. Gradient compression stockings provide pressure around the foot and ankle and then less pressure toward the top of the leg. This helps leg muscles move blood up the leg to the heart, and prevents superficial veins beneath the stocking from pooling with blood.


Compression stockings cannot, however, cure the underlying venous reflux condition that causes varicose veins. So while compression therapy can be used to manage symptoms, your varicose vein condition can still progress to the point that more advanced treatment is necessary.


It should also be noted that many insurance providers require compression therapy before you can become eligible for more curative treatments. Please read our blog post on compression stockings.
