Compression Socks / Stockings

Picture of Compressions

Graduated Compression Socks or Stockings (socks which are strongest at the ankle and decrease in compression as they go up the leg) help to return blood to the heart, decrease venous pressure, prevent blood pooling, and the deterioration of the vein walls. They also effectively relieve aching and heavy legs by helping the body in moving blood up the leg against the pull of gravity.

At the Arthritis & Injury Care Centre our Certified Brace Specialists will take the time to review your injury/condition and help to educate you on the benefits of Compression Socks or Stockings. During your one-on-one no obligation appointment we will take the time to size you correctly and to assess your needs.

Compression Socks or Stockings come in various sizes to accommodate all sizes and lengths of legs.

There are a number of reasons as to why your doctor or healthcare provider may suggest Compression Socks or Stockings to you. Here are a few of the more common reasons:

– Swelling or Edema of the ankles and/or legs
– Achy or Heavy Legs
– Post-surgically to prevent potentially life-threatening blood clots from developing
– Poor circulation
– Varicose veins
