We offer quality JOBST compression stockings for individuals that suffer from both upper and low extremity Lymphedema, swelling, varicose veins and other forms of edema.
Jobst compression stockings are specialized socks that are worn from the foot to the knee or thigh. Compression stockings have a gradient of pressure, which provides a tighter fit in the foot and gradually lessens at the knee. Compression levels are typically expressed in mmHg (millimeters of mercury).
Compression stockings are an excellent and simple method of treating lymphedema, chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, post phlebitic syndrome and prevention of blood clots in the leg. While support stockings for varicose veins do not eliminate varicose veins, they do help reduce the swelling, aching and the heavy feeling that individuals with varicose veins experience. We highly recommend support stockings for varicose veins as a means to relieve the discomfort. Compression stocking are great for long periods of sitting such as long car rides and plane rides and help decrease the probability of blood clot formation in the legs.
We recommend that you speak with your physician to ensure that compression stockings are right for you. Individuals who are diabetic, smoke or have a decreased blood supply to the legs many times are not recommended to wear these types of stockings as they can decrease the blood supply further and worsen the disease.
