Varicose veins are an unsightly disorder that can have a negative effect on your health and image. They have various causes including age, heredity and lifestyle. Left untreated, they have potential to develop into a bigger issue.
Compression stockings are an excellent way to reduce the effects of varicose veins and other venous disorders. These are elastic garments worn on your legs that exert pressure to improve venous blood flow. Not only will this improve your overall health, but you will no longer be embarrassed to show off your legs with a pair of stockings on. While not necessarily a treatment, they do help improve blood flow in your legs and feet and prevents blood from pooling up in your lower extremities. This hinders the ability of the veins to expand as they would tend to do with varicose veins or similar venous disorders.
Unlike similar dress or athletic stockings, compression stockings use much stronger elasticity to aid in blood flow. If you suffer from a venous disorder, obesity or are pregnant, then compression stockings might be right for you. Talk to your doctor to see if they are right for you.
