Graduated Compression Therapy: Treatment For Varicose Veins & Spider Veins
What is Graduated Compression Therapy?
Graduated compression therapy is highly recommended in the conservative treatment of venous disease. In order to be effective, legwear used to provide graduated compression therapy must be knitted so that they are graduated; meaning they must exert their highest pressure, measured in mmHg, at the ankle and that pressure must decrease proximally (up the leg).
We utilize Venosan Compression Therapy Stockings here at Premier Vein Specialists.
Veins in the legs literally move blood back to the heart through a series of valves that open and close, with muscle contraction preventing backward flow of blood. A multitude of problems: age, disease, heredity, overweight, as well as prolonged sitting or standing can cause these valves to malfunction, allowing blood to pool in the lower legs. The result is pain, swelling, and stagnation of the blood.
VENOSAN legwear is scientifically designed to apply decreasing pressure from the ankle up the leg, This controlled pressure compresses surface veins, keeping them small and forcing blood to deeper veins in the legs. This process accelerates the velocity of blood flow to the heart and ends pooling of the blood, thus assuring healthier feet and legs.
Legwear that provides graduated compression therapy is used to prevent mild varicosities and edema, as well as the treatment of severe cases of chronic venous insufficiency, including the prevention of the recurrence of venous stasis ulcers.
