Custom Compression Stockings

why compression stockings?

Wearing compression stockings provide many benefits. They improve blood flow in the legs, which prevents lactic acid from building up. Wearing the wrong kind of socks has the possibility of causing an uneven circulation in the legs. This often leads to muscle soreness.

Arteries carry blood from your heart to the rest of your tissues. Veins return blood from the rest of your body to your heart, so the blood can be recirculated. To return blood to your heart, the veins in your legs must work against gravity.Muscle contractions in your lower legs act as pumps, and elastic vein walls help blood return to your heart. Tiny valves in your veins open as blood flows toward your heart then close to stopblood from flowing backward.

As you get older, your veins can lose elasticity, causing them to stretch. The valves in your veins may become weak, allowing blood that should be moving toward your heart to flow backward. Blood pools in your veins, and your veins enlarge and become varicose. The veins appear blue because they contain deoxygenated blood, which is in the process of being recirculated through the lungs. Compression stockings can help promote blood flow back up to the heart and prevent pooling of blood in your lower limbs.
