Vein Compression Therapy In New Jersey
Varicose veins are unsightly, typically occurring just under the skin, and they sometimes cause discomfort or pain. If you have varicose veins and experience fullness or pain in the lower legs, the medical professionals at Comprehensive Vein Care may be able to alleviate these symptoms through vein compression therapy.
What Is Vein Compression Therapy?
Our doctors recommend the best treatment for your condition, and one of the simplest is vein compression therapy for spider and varicose veins. During this treatment method, you get a pair of compression socks or stockings, depending on the location of your varicosity.
You usually put on the socks or stockings in the morning as soon as you wake up. They are worn the entire day and only removed when you go to bed at night. Throughout the day, the socks compress the legs and prevent blood from pooling in your veins. As a result, you experience better overall circulation and reduced leg swelling.
You may experience some discomfort when you begin the therapy. Remember that our staff is ready to answer your questions and concerns at any time.
How Does Vein Compression Therapy Work?
The compression is graduated, starting with the strongest support at the ankles and less pressure at the top of the garment. This gradual support uses the pumping action of your calf muscles to facilitate circulation in your legs.
The compression stockings act as an extra layer of muscles that gently squeeze the damaged vein walls together so the valves can close and help normalize blood flow.
Ideal Compression Stockings
The most recommended socks and stockings apply 20-30mm Hg of compression for optimal relief of venous disease. However, your Comprehensive Vein Care vein expert will determine what will work best for you and make adjustments as needed during your course of treatment.
