Do you have or suffer from any of the following if so, talk to us about compression socks/hosiery:

Be pro-active and talk to your doctor today about prescribed compression socks/hosiery or discuss the benefits of compression socks/hosiery with our professional staff!!!

Compression socks/hosiery are specialized hosiery items designed to increase blood circulation. Their main therapeutic purpose is to provide graduated pressure on the lower leg and foot and, in some cases, the thigh, to alleviate circulatory problems such as edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. Unlike traditional dress or athletic stockings and socks, compression socks/hosiery use stronger elastics to create pressure on the legs, ankles and feet.

Compression socks/hosiery are tightest at the ankles and gradually decrease towards the knees and thighs. By compressing the surface veins, arteries and muscles, the circulation in the feet, ankle and legs is improved. As a result, the arterial pressure is increased which causes more blood to return to the heart and less blood to pool in the feet.
