Every time you take a step, the muscles of the lower leg contract and relax, putting pressure on the veins of the lower leg, and assisting them in fighting against gravity to move your blood back up to the heart. Within the veins there are one way valves that are designed to prevent the return of blood to the leg. When this pumping system does not work properly, varicosities and swollen legs can start. For Varicose veins that are mild or moderate, a number of treatments including stretching and exercises in combination with compression stockings are beneficial:
- Varicose veins during pregnancy
- Tired, aching legs due to prolonged sitting or long flights
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Leg edema due to diabetes
Compression stockings can be prescribed by your physician or our chiropodist. To order the right stocking a measurement will be performed. The best time for measuring your legs is first thing in the morning, so book your appointment as close to your waking time as possible. For more severe conditions, a visit to a specialist and possibly surgery may be necessary.
For more information please see SIGVARIS® Compression Stocking Therapy page.
