Compression stockings are designed to help alleviate symptoms associated with venous and lymphatic disorders such as swelling, varicose veins, and lymphedema. These stockings are made from high-quality materials that provide therapeutic compression to improve blood and lymphatic flow in the legs and feet.
At Back ‘n Motion, we understand the importance of proper fitting and sizing when it comes to medical compression stockings. Our professional certified fitters take the time to assess each patient’s needs and provide recommendations based on their individual condition.
WHAT ARE COMPRESSION STOCKINGS?
Sigvaris medical stockings are specially constructed. The design allows the greatest pressure at the ankle region and the
compression decreases gradually in the direction of the knee and thigh. Stockings can be made from latex-free materials including Nylon, Cotton, and Natural Rubber and are available in many colors and styles.
With correct fitting and compression, the performance of the body’s natural muscle pump is increased, the lumen of the veins is narrowed so that the flow rate of the venous blood is accelerated. This allows the venous valves to work effectively and the danger of thrombosis and other complications is reduced.
