Leg Pain? Leg Vein Problems? Get Compression Stockings at Elio’s.

Are you suffering from tired, achy legs, or feeling pain caused by varicose veins?

Compression stockings, socks or hosiery can be beneficial medical aids that can help ease these uncomfortable symptoms.
Elio’s experts know these symptoms often result from poor blood flow in the lower limbs. Factors that worsen blood flow include:

  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Major Surgery
  • Sedentary Lifestyle

Top medical quality compression stockings offered at Elio’s are made with strong, graduated elastic to help the blood flow back up to the heart to improve circulation.

Many medical conditions can also worsen blood flow in the lower limbs.

These conditions include:

  • Varicose Veins
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Chronic Venous Disease

Compression stockings are an often-proven solution to help people of all ages. Because of this, Elio’s Foot Comfort Centre offers a specialist, with compression certification, to assist our patients.
It is important to be sized for compression hosiery by a compression specialist because wearing compression hosiery that is too tight could put harmful pressure on a superior vein or nerve.

Elio’s experts will correctly measure the circumference of the patient’s ankle and calf, as well as the length of their lower leg.  Some patients also require measurements to be taken of their thigh and waist.

Tips to help maintain the health of  leg veins

  1. Exercise
  2. Elevation
  3. Wearing gradient compression hosiery

Regular walking, swimming or cycling works the calf and thigh muscles.

Contraction of these muscles helps the return of venous blood from the legs back to the heart.

Compression therapy alone is not enough. Exercise and periods of leg elevation are also necessary for effective management of edema, venous disease, and lymphatic disease.
