Many people can benefit from using graduated compression socks which are special socks or stockings designed specifically to improve the circulation of blood in the legs. People with any vascular medical condition are ideal candidates for this special hosiery. The socks, or stockings, apply a greater amount of pressure around the ankle with the pressure decreasing as the stocking moves up the leg. They literally push blood up the leg in order to prevent the problems that occur when blood pools in the leg due to poor circulation.
According to Sigvaris, a leading manufacturer of graduated compression stockings, approximately 25 million people suffer from varicose veins. Thousands more have edema, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other vascular problems and can benefit from the use of these stockings. The socks or stockings are recommended for anyone who suffers from peripheral edema, including diabetics, unless contraindicated by another medical condition. Here is an overview of how these socks or stockings can benefit those with DVT or peripheral edema.
Deep Vein Thrombosis DVT is when a blood clot forms in any deep vein in the body, but is most commonly a condition of the lower legs. It is serious in that if the clot breaks loose, it travels through the bloodstream to the lungs and causes difficulty in breathing. This is called a pulmonary embolism and can even result in death. It is most common in sedentary people or those who have been sitting for a long time, for example, on a long road trip or airplane ride. Anyone who has ever suffered from DVT knows the importance of preventing it from happening again. The Mayo Clinic recommends that for an entire year after a person experiences DVT, they should wear, every day, graduated compression socks that fit on the lower leg from the ankle to the knee.
Peripheral Edema and Diabetics Peripheral edema means swelling in the feet, ankles and legs that occurs when fluid builds up in the tissues. There can be many causes of this condition including venous insufficiency often associated with diabetes. In simple terms, this condition occurs when the normal flow of blood through the limbs is impaired. A common treatment for this condition is compression socks or stockings prescribed by a physician. They come in different compression strengths and in different lengths, either knee high or thigh high. There is a difference in diabetic socks and diabetic compression socks so be sure you know which type your doctor has recommended or prescribed for you. • Diabetic socks: These have no compression but are smooth, seamless and well-padded. They are designed to conform to the foot without wrinkling. These are used to prevent blisters and other disorders that can lead to infection. • Diabetic compression socks: They have all the features of regular diabetic socks with the added benefit of graduated compression to assist with circulation.
Martin Avenue Shops offers graduated compression socks depending on your specific needs. For a custom fit, you will need to provide the exact measurements of your ankle, calf and lower leg.
