Compression Stockings Burlington
Millcroft Pharmacy Compression Stockings
Compression stockings is a simple and effective means of increasing blood flow activity in the lower limbs through strengthening vein support. The socks or stockings serve as a replicated muscle, adding some pressure to contracting areas of restricted blood circulation in the leg, allowing veins to loosen up and reduce pain in the lower limbs.
Our range of compression stockings put pressure on your legs to make your blood vessels work better. Specifically, they are designed to apply pressure to your veins. The greatest pressure is at the ankles and the least is at the top of the stocking. This pressure forces your blood upward, against gravity, back to your heart.
As we age, we are often more prone to circulation problems, this can lead to more pain and more serious health problems. Compression stockings or compression therapy can help to increase blood flow and circulation within the legs and feet. Compression socks can help you to reduce certain symptoms you might have been feeling including weakness. Not only can compression socks reduce the damage suffered, but they can also help to regenerate damaged tissue.
Compression socks are great for both men and women who suffer from varicose veins, leg ulcers, arthritis among many others. The use of compression socks regularly can help you to take preventative action in your health while ensuring your living a healthy lifestyle with relief from pain. Not all compression socks fit the same and it is important to be fitted properly for a compression sock.
