Do you have tired, achy legs? Swollen ankles? Spider or varicose veins? Long distance travel, standing or sitting for long periods of time, even pregnancy may constrain blood circulation and increase the risk for the development of thrombosis (blood clot formation) Blood clots may end up in the lungs, resulting in a pulmonary embolism.
Wearing graduated compression stockings or socks may increase leg/foot comfort and help prevent flight-related DVT. The external pressure provided by the socks will support your veins, increasing circulation back towards the heart and reduces the chance of swollen, tired legs.
Here at University Pharmacy, we can help pick out the appropriate material, compression and size of compression therapy for your individual needs. Book your measurement consultation today!
