Compression hosiery solutions varicose vein pain.
Suffering from tired, achy legs? Feeling the pain caused by varicose veins? Compression hosiery is a highly beneficial medical aid to help ease these uncomfortable symptoms.
Elio’s experts know these symptoms often result from poor blood flow in the lower limbs. Deep vein thrombosis, chronic venous disease and varicose veins (enlarged, hardened veins) are commonly known conditions resulting in restricted blood flow.
Blood flow can be restricted for a number of reasons such as
hereditary, smoking, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, and major surgery. Compression stockings are proven solutions to help men, women, and people of all ages.
For varicose vein pain solutions, Elio’s offers patients a specialist for compression hosiery. Our patients appreciate the benefit of being sized by a lower limb expert who has compression certification.
Consider the consequences of wearing compression hosiery that is too tight, which could harmfully put pressure on a superior vein or nerve. Depending on the type of compression hosiery required, Elio’s Pedorthist will measure the circumference of the patient’s ankle and calf and the length of their lower leg. Some patients also require measurements to be taken of their thigh and waist.
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.
