Having a pair of compression stockings that fit correctly is crucial for vein treatment recovery. Ensuring the right fit will not only help your veins heal properly after your immediately after treatment, they’ll also help you avoid any potential complications and setbacks in your recovery process.
During your vein treatment process at Ozark Regional Vein & Artery Center, our team will work with you in order to find the proper type and fit of compression stockings. Each type and fit will be based on your unique needs. These include:
- Below-the-knee stockings
- Thigh-high stockings
- Full-length stockings
Having a pair that is too long or loose around your legs will prevent the stockings from applying the pressure needed for proper recovery. If your pair is too long, it’s important to contact our office rather than fold the stockings or roll them. This can lead to problems with circulation.
A pair that’s too snug or suffocating, on the other hand, can lead to major problems. These include issues such as pressure sores, skin damage, or problems with blood circulation. If you notice redness or irritation at the site of your compression stockings, this may be a sign that your pair is too tight. It may also mean that you are allergic to the material.
Also, it’s important to smooth out your compression stockings as you put them on. This helps to prevent wrinkles or bunching. Stockings that don’t lay flat against your legs will prevent you from getting the best possible results from your treatment and recovery.
During your vein treatment process at Ozark Regional Vein & Artery Center, our team will work with you on an individual basis. This will help us find the proper type and fit of compression stockings based on your unique needs.
When you receive your compression stockings, it’s crucial that you wear them as much as possible. This will help you get the maximum recovery benefits.
If you have questions about your compression stockings related to use or insurance information, our team will happily assist and provide the answers you need.
