Are You Suffering From Tired/Achy Legs, or Varicose Veins? Compression Socks From Elio’s Can Help.

What are Compression Socks?

Compression socks or stockings are gradient elastic garments worn around the leg. They are designed to improve blood circulation through the legs by narrowing the diameter of the vein and applying a larger amount of compression at the bottom of the limb which gradually decreases in pressure further up the leg.

Benefits of Compression Socks

Compression socks are prescribed at different compression levels depending on the patient’s diagnosis. They can be used to treat, prevent, and reduce:

  • Lower limb swelling (edema)

  • Spider veins

  • Varicose veins

  • Venous insufficiency

  • Tired achy legs

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

Compression Sizing at Elio’s

It is important to be properly sized by a certified compression specialist to ensure the compression garment fits and functions properly. At Elio’s, experts will correctly measure the circumference of the patient’s ankle, calf, thigh and waist as well as the length of the full leg and lower leg. They will also go over the many styles and fabrics that compression socks are available in.

A prescription from your doctor is required for compression strengths greater than 20 mmHg. A prescription is also required for your insurance submission.
