Compression Hosiery

Compression Hosiery

With over 50% of adults at risk of Chronic Venous Disorders (CVD), understanding the causes is important. CVD is the result of everyday symptoms such as tired, aching or swollen legs or Varicose Veins, and can lead to problems such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, leg ulcers and other severe venous disorders.

The root cause is deficient venous circulation and it can get progressively worse over time. There are numerous risk factors that are associated with CVD including:

  • Long distance travel
  • Heredity
  • Age over 40
  • Prolonged sitting or standing
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Surgery or trauma
  • Infectious disease
  • Use of hormone medication

Graduated compression therapy helps with the treatment of CVD. The external graduated compression of the socks and stockings acts as a layer of muscle, and gently squeezes the stretched vein walls together, allowing the valves to close. This action restores blood flow to a normal state, aiding in overall circulation.

If you need compression hosiery, then Don Valley Health & Wellness – Sports & Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Centre located on the corner of Pape and Danforth near Danforth Village, Riverdale and East York can help. 

Most health insurance plans cover compression hosiery. Speak with a Don Valley Health & Wellness – Sports & Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Centre clinician for more information.
