Suffering from varicose vein pain? Know a friend or loved one limping with foot pain or leg aches as a consequence of heavy, fatigued legs or swollen feet and ankles through a day of walking or standing.  Do not think you have to endure the pain and suffer through life with chronic discomfort of leg aches.

The first step to alleviate the pain is to ask for advice on compression hosiery from a Canadian Certified Pedorthist at Elio’s. As you may hear it these days, Medical stockings, or compression hosiery is a highly beneficial medical aid that we have at Elio’s Foot Comfort Centre to help ease these uncomfortable symptoms for patients in St.Catharines, Thorold, Niagara.

The team of experts at Elio’s will help find a solution for tired, achy legs, which we know is often the result from poor blood flow in the lower limbs. For example, Deep Vein Thrombosis (a blood clot deep in the lower limbs), Chronic Venous Disease (blood pooling caused by failing valves within the veins) and Varicose Veins (enlarged, hardened veins) are commonly known conditions resulting in restricted blood flow.

Science shows us that blood flow can be restricted for a number of reasons, but the most common causes in Niagara we see in patients at Elio’s are: hereditary, smoking, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, a long airplane flight, extended bed rest and major surgery. Either way, compression stockings are proven solutions to help men, women, and people of all ages in Niagara.

The good medical quality compression stockings offered at Elio’s are made with strong, graduated elastic to help the blood flow through the veins normally, either pushing the blood away from a site or moving blood from one end of the leg to the other. For quality control, Elio’s exclusively uses the highest quality brands of compression hosiery for our patients from St. Catharines, Thorold, Niagara Falls, Welland, and surrounding areas.

Varicose Vein Pain Solutions | St Catharines Niagara at Elio’s Foot Comfort Centre

We are proud to say our satisfied patients wear compression stockings all day, or some women only need to wear it during pregnancy.  Some of our patients only wear the compression socks before, during or after an athletic event or for a long flight. For Elio’s patients who want to wear compression stockings for a relatively longer period of time, we often recommend that they carry multiple pairs of compression hosiery to ensure it provides the medical grade compression you require all the time.

The medical quality products available at Elio’s are available in a wide range of forms and sizes, styles, and colours.  Elioi’s is also a Niagara specialist for compression hosiery.  Our patients appreciate the benefit of being sized by a lower limb expert who has compression certification, such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist, This professional service is vitally important when it comes to foot care at Elio’s. Consider, for example, the consequences of wearing compression hosiery that is too tight, which can be harmful as there could be pressure on a superior vein or nerve. Depending on the type of compression hosiery a patient requires Elio’s Pedorthist will measure the circumference of the patient’s ankle and calf and the length of their lower leg. Some patients at Elio’s also require measurements to be taken of their thigh and waist.

We know that compression stockings are a highly beneficial medical device when required, but our team also understands the solution is not always appropriate for everyone.  For instance, if a person suffers from congestive heart failure, arterial disease, skin allergies or infections, neuropathy or diabetes, a physician should be consulted to determine if compression hosiery would be an effective treatment.  However, the first step to take for general assessment of compression hosiery is to get a foot assessment with a Certified Pedorthist at Elio’s.
