Wearing Daily Compression for Prevention

Wearing Daily Compression for Prevention

Gradient compression works by applying a specific level of pressure to the feet, ankles, & legs, with the highest pressure at the ankle and gradually decreasing as it moves up towards the thigh. This pressure helps to improve blood flow in the veins by assisting the muscles in pumping blood back towards the heart. This helps to reduce swelling, discomfort, and the risk of blood clots. Gradient compression also helps to prevent the pooling of blood in the legs and promotes overall circulation, ultimately improving the overall health and function of the veins.

Wearing compression garments on the lower limbs can help prevent the development of venous diseases by reducing the risk of blood clots, varicose veins, and other circulation-related issues.


Common venous diseases include:

1. Varicose veins: enlarged, twisted veins that usually appear in the legs and can cause pain, swelling, and aching.

2. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT): a blood clot that forms in a deep vein, usually in the legs, which can lead to swelling, pain, and potentially life-threatening complications if the clot breaks loose and travels to the lungs.

3. Chronic venous insufficiency: a condition where the valves in the veins are damaged or weakened, leading to poor circulation, swelling, ulcers, and skin changes.

4. Spider veins: smaller, dilated blood vessels that typically appear on the legs and can cause aching, burning, and itching.


By wearing compression socks individuals can help prevent or alleviate these symptoms and reduce the risk of developing more serious venous diseases. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider before starting to wear compression socks, as they can provide guidance on the right level of compression and fit for each individual's needs
