Can compression garments help you?

Are you on your feet all day? Tired of the heavy feeling in your legs? Do you have poor circulation? Do you fly frequently? Did you just have surgery?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, keep reading!

Compression garments are pieces of clothing that fit tightly around the skin. In medical contexts, compression garments provide support for people who have poor circulation, varicose veins, DVTs, or must stand for long periods. Compression garments are also utilized as a means to reduce post-operative swelling and swelling that may occur with air travel. These garments come in varying degrees of compression, styles (socks, knee highs, thigh-highs stockings, sleeves, etc..), and colors. MOST insurances provide coverage for compression garments with a doctor’s prescription.

Compression garments can help the following conditions:
-Chronic Venous Insufficiency
-Post-operative edema
-Varicose veins
-Edema associated with air travel
