How Compression Therapy Works

Compression therapy is one of the first lines of defense against varicose veins, often suggested by phlebologists before turning to more invasive methods to treat venous disorders.

How it works

Compression stockings are designed to squeeze the legs and put pressure on the muscles and veins to aid in proper circulation. This form of varicose vein treatment is usually inefficient and often ineffective in resolving varicose vein development.

Compression stockings don’t treat varicose veins. Rather, they are only intended to slow down the progression of the vein problem. Compared to other varicose vein treatments, such as EVLT, compression therapy provides relatively ineffective, and only temporary results.

Can compression therapy work?

For compression therapy to actually have beneficial results, the stockings must be very tight around the legs, and worn day and night. Stockings are also known to be very hot and cause a significant amount of discomfort when worn all day. This causes potential patients to maintain strict upkeep and can become troublesome when having to pull the stockings on and off constantly. Compression stockings are also expensive.
