In order to prevent & slow the development of venous disorders such edema, deep vein thrombosis, and so on, we recommend wearing our compression stockings. They assist in bringing down the size of swollen veins, which improves the blood flow rate and the efficiency of the veins' valves. Venous stagnation and venous wall deficiencies can be avoided and symptoms like leg cramps and soreness can be alleviated with the use of compression therapy.
At Finch Gate physiotherapy, our clinical professional can assess your case and recommend you the right compression stocking. Do not forget to bring your medical reports along with you. Our compression stockings can address your condition in a more accurate way. If needed, we can suggest and employ alternative therapies to manage the condition. We consider several aspects before recommending you the compression stockings – level of compression, area to be fitted on, and severity of your condition.
Wear our compression stockings for maximum benefits
It's important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for compression stockings and individuals should consult with us to determine if they are appropriate for their specific needs.
- The controlled compression provided by custom stockings helps to improve blood flow in the legs, reducing the risk of blood clots and swelling
- By improving circulation, custom compression stockings can help to relieve pain and discomfort associated with conditions such as varicose veins
- By reducing swelling and improving circulation, custom compression stockings can help to improve mobility and reduce the risk of leg fatigue
- Custom compression stockings are made to fit the individual's specific measurements, providing a better and more comfortable fit than generic, over-the-counter stockings
Custom compression stockings are made to last, and with proper care, they can provide sustained compression and support over a longer period of time than generic stockings
Type of stockings we deal with at Finch Gate
- Graduated compression stockings provide the highest compression at the ankle and gradually decrease as they move up the leg
- Anti-embolism stockings are used to prevent blood clots, especially in hospital patients who are bedridden
- Support hose stockings provide mild compression and are used to improve circulation and relieve mild swelling in the legs
- Maternity compression stockings are designed for pregnant women to help reduce swelling in the legs and improve circulation
- Compression socks are shorter versions of compression stockings and are used to treat conditions such as varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, and venous insufficiency
- Compression sleeves are similar to compression stockings, but only cover the lower leg and ankle
Health conditions and our compression stockings
Our compression stockings are used to treat a variety of conditions –
- Varicose veins: Can help improve circulation, reduce swelling, and relieve discomfort
- Deep vein thrombosis: DVT is a condition in which blood clots form in the deep veins of the legs
- Venous insufficiency: It is a condition in which the veins in the legs are not able to effectively pump blood back to the heart
- Edema: Edema is a condition in which excess fluid accumulates in the tissues and causes swelling
- Lymphedema: A condition in which the lymphatic system is unable to effectively remove excess fluid from the tissues
Post-thrombotic syndrome: PTS is a condition that can occur after a person has had DVT
