Compression Socks, Hosiery and Sleeves
Why do you need them?
Many patients are always surprised when we suggest that they can benefit from compression socks. We carry medical grade (20 -30mmHG) to meet your individual goals. Compression socks work by aiding the veins in the lower leg push blood back to the heart. This can improve health and reduce soreness in the legs. Compression socks come in a variety of styles from athletic to business to fashion. During your session, your physiotherapist or chiropractor can measure you to ensure the perfect fit in either a custom or off the shelf sock.

Heavy and tired legs and swollen ankles are signs of chronic venous insufficiency, which is a serious disease with real consequences. Around 15 percent of the population currently suffers from venous diseases. If you find that your shoes are getting tight during the day, this could be a visible sign of venous weakness. Wearing compression stocking is key with the treatment of venous disorders. This treatment is prescribed by a physician to treat phlebitis, thrombosis, and aftercare following surgery, sclerotherapy, and any other forms of varicose vein treatment, and also to relieve all conditions of chronic venous disease (heavy legs, varicose veins, edemas, leg ulcers). It can also be prescribed to prevent venous issues during pregnancy and long-distance travel. If no contraindications like severe arterial insufficiency are present, compression stockings of lower pressure can be purchased without a prescription.
