When it comes to the topic of varicose veins and treatment options for them, it is not something that any of us want to think about. For those affected by varicose veins it is important to know what can be done to provide relief as a short term or long-term solution.
Varicose veins affect men and women alike. In fact almost 60% of adults and 1 in 3 American are affected. Some of the increased risk factors are age, pregnancy, extended sitting or standing, weight and genetics.
Compression stockings are an effective way to help restore proper blood flow, improve circulation, reduce swelling and alleviate tired and achy legs. Compression stockings have come a long way from the stockings of old. You can now find stockings in several different colors, patterns and even in leggings. You can support your legs and veins without anyone even knowing you are wearing them.
The Intermountain Vein Center team has put together an informational new infographic that gives the “Squeeze on Compression Stockings”. The graphic outlines proper care instructions, details the different types of stockings as well as provides some helpful tips on keeping healthy legs during pregnancy.
