Compression socks or stockings
One of the problems with varicose veins that we have discussed several times now is the fact that the veins have become too ‘loose’. This means that they are not able to function as they should.
When you put on these compression socks or stockings, they are immensely tight. This means that there is a great deal of pressure placed on your leg, which helps the blood to flow to your heart much easier than before. Because of the intense pressure they place on your leg, these stockings and socks will also help decrease the swelling.
Even though these are a good temporary option, they are not a permanent one. Especially when younger, can you imagine having to put on compression socks or stockings every day to avoid problems? They offer a temporary solution, but are not an option if you want a permanent treatment. In addition, many people consider them to be rather painful the first few times they wear them and will never quite become comfortable wearing them.
