Compression Stockings

Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are designed to help protect against and prevent the occurrence of further progression of such venous disorders as phlebitis, thrombosis/clots and edema/swelling by increasing venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness, and reducing the diameter of distended veins. The following conditions have been successfully treated by the application of compression stockings from Active Foot Care Clinic and Orthotic Centre in Brantford and Hamilton, Ontario:

  • Clot in veins / venous thromboembolism
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • lower limb or ankle swelling / edema
  • Aching, tired legs
  • Spider veins / mild varicosities
  • Varicose veins
  • Pregnancy induced lower limb side effects
  • Lymphedema
