Where can I book?
Family 1st Medical has professionally trained, experienced compression hosiery fitters on staff. They can fit you with the correct size and style according to your specific requirements.
Compression hosiery is for men and women who, for example, suffer from poor circulation, varicose veins, and painful swelling of the legs and ankles, and they also aid in the prevention of blood clots.
Bauerfeind, Venosan and Sigvaris Compression Hosiery offer Doctors and patients a full range of styles and comfort. The clinical benefits of these brands have been attained without sacrificing the stockings appearance.
Compression therapy is one of the most important methods in the treatment of venous disorders. Applying compression bandages or wearing compression stockings presses the distended veins (varicose veins, varicosities) together from the outside. This enables the venous valves to close again, the leg muscles can squeeze the blood better out of the veins which, in turn, improves the return transport of blood to the heart.
Since veins that have once been distended are no longer able to actively contract, such compression must be used for the rest of the patient’s life if surgery is contraindicated. However, even in cases where surgery is indicated, compression stockings must also be worn or the legs must be dressed with compressive bandages for a number of weeks after the surgical removal of the veins.
