The use of compression stockings is one of the initial measures to relieve some of the symptoms of varicose veins.
These enlarged veins affecting your legs can cause feelings of heaviness, itchiness, and discomfort especially when you’re sitting or standing for too long.
The Benefits of Using Compression Stockings
If you’re experiencing symptoms of varicose veins, you can benefit from using compression stockings. They’re designed to help improve the circulation of your affected leg.
Compression stockings are tightest at the foot area, but gradually loosen as they fit higher on the leg.
The physicians of Premier Surgical Vascular and Vein Center in Knoxville often recommend wearing these stockings during the day. These are available in a medical supply store where you can be fitted for them. They should feel snug, but comfortable.
Compression stockings can be challenging to put on and may take a while to get used to it. But, when worn correctly and having them properly-fitted, they can help alleviate some of the uncomfortable varicose vein symptoms.
If you’ve been wearing compression stockings for a while and still experiencing significant discomfort from varicose veins, you may want to consider treatment for varicose veins. Wearing compression stockings is often a requirement for insurance coverage of vein treatment.
The specialists at Premier Vascular and Vein Center recommend saying winter is the perfect time for vein treatment. We offer minimally-invasive procedures that require very little to no downtime at all!
