Compression Therapy

Compression therapy means wearing socks or stockings that are specially designed to support your veins and increase circulation in your legs. The socks or stockings are normally worn in the morning upon arising, and removed at night. Throughout the day the compression they provide prevents blood from pooling in leg veins, thereby helping overall circulation and diminishing any leg swelling you may have.

Compression stockings improve the signs and symptoms of various conditions of venous disease by providing graduated compression therapy to help control leg swelling and discomfort. They are designed to provide support to the legs and veins, assist with circulation, and minimize swelling. The compression is graduated, with the strongest support starting at the ankles and gradually decreasing towards the top of the garment. This gradual support works in conjunction with the pumping action of the calf muscles, which also assist with circulation.

 

Compression Bandages by JOBST®

JOBST® offers a variety of bandaging systems designed to allow the optimal management of edema. These bandage systems are generally used before wearing a compression garment. Bandages help reduce swelling and stabilize the size of the limb before being measured and fit for the JOBST® compression garment.
