Easing Painful Vein Symptoms
Anyone who suffers from varicose or spider veins understands the pain that can be associated with the conditions. At La Jolla Laser, we work with our patients to provide a wide array of treatments and services to minimize the pain associated with various vein conditions. Compression stockings are one option that we prescribe to provide patients with more comfort throughout daily activities.
Compression socks work by gently squeezing the legs to reduce the amount of blood pooling. Because the blood is moving throughout the legs, leg swelling can be reduced, along with the occurrence of blood clots. Through this La Jolla Laser blog, you will also learn some additional benefits of compression stockings, and learn if this could be a good solution for your vein pain.
Benefits of Compression Stockings
Compression stockings can offer relief of pain associated with vein conditions. During a consultation with one of our vein specialists at La Jolla Laser, it may be compression stockings may be recommended for use.
Unlike ordinary socks, compression stockings are specially fitted to be tighter at the feet, and gradually looser as they reach the upper legs. There are different types of stockings that are recommended for different vein conditions, but rest assured that you will be informed of the right choice of compression stocking when you meet with La Jolla Laser.
Compression stockings have been found to be beneficial for many individuals suffering from pain associated from vein conditions, and are used to:
- Improve the blood flow throughout the legs
- Reduce the amount that can pool in the legs
- Relieve symptoms associated with varicose veins
- Help individuals manage pain while standing throughout the day
During a consultation at La Jolla Laser, we will discuss if compression stockings are a good option for your needs. In addition, we will then discuss the best uses for compression stockings, how you should personally wear them, and regular replacement and care of the stockings.
