Exquisite Compression stockings for varicose veins…
Living in an industrialized country we have the opportunity of wearing compression stockings for varicose veins, where more than 30% of women and about 10% of men see a doctor about the veins in their legs. Factors such as heredity, excess weight, and working where there are prolonged periods of standing or sitting may increase the risk of developing a chronic venous disease of the leg.
Wearing compression stockings for varicose veins is an important part of management of the veins. These conditions can evolve and produce complications such as skin pigmentation, chronic odema, dermatitis, eczema, phlebitis and ultimately leg ulcerations. The most common symptoms are feelings of heaviness and tiredness in the legs, especially after long days of work, and often associated with leg swelling.
There are two types of varicose vein classifications – primary and secondary. By wearing compression stockings for varicose veins especially at the primary stage you are giving your legs a chance! The risk of developing primary varicose veins is frequently associated with heredity, female gender, pregnancy and higher age. Secondary varicosities are a direct result of deep vein occlusion. Varicose veins are part of the chronic venous insufficiency disease.
Wearing compression stockings for varicose veins is vital for the management and treatment of varicose veins and other venous disorders.
