Compression stocking therapy is a proven medical treatment for venous disorders. Some of these are listed below.
Venous insufficiency, varicose veins, phlebitis, DVT (deep vein thrombosis), leg ulcers and skin discolouration .
Compression stocking therapy focuses on health problems associated with poor circulation due to either weak vein walls or vein blockages.
Compression stockings are a non-invasive treatment method.
They can help relieve pain and swelling (oedema), improve mobility, and restore lost energy associated with venous disorders. They have no adverse reactions when used in conjunction with any medication you may be taking.
Compression stockings work by applying firm, continuous graduated pressure to the veins and muscles within the leg. Complaints such as heavy, tired or restless legs, muscle cramps at night or itching are common, but some people, despite having pronounced varicose veins, have no symptoms at all.
Varicose veins are a widespread problem but, as a disease, they are often not taken seriously enough. According to the results of a study on veins carried out in Bonn in 2004, one in 6 men and one in 5 women have clinically relevant varicose veins.
If all degrees of severity are considered together, the number of people affected comes to well over 50%
Medical compression garments are an important part of the treatment of severe swelling as in Lymphoedema or Lipoedema
Swelling of a body part caused by abnormal accumulation of lymph fluid
This can happen when lymphatic vessels are damaged, removed, or overloaded.
When and how to measure for compression stockings
Medical compression garments should be measured by a trained fitter where possible
Important points when measuring for compression garments
Early morning if possible when leg is not swollen
If the leg is swollen, elevate leg for a period of time
Patient should be standing where possible
REMEMBER! CORRECT SIZE IS EVERYTHING!
If the garment is too tight, the client will be uncomfortable and the likelihood of them wearing the stockings all day is slim.
If the garment is too big, the client will spend all day pulling it up
Incorrect sizing will cause discomfort to the client and will result in poor compliance
If measurements are at the very end of the size scale there will be minimal stretch left in the garment
If this occurs, move up to the next size. This will still give the correct compression, but garment will be more comfortable and easier to don.
If a client is very elderly or has poor muscle strength, start with a lower compression garment. Once they are used to wearing and donning this garment, you can introduce a higher compression if needed.
To get accustomed to wearing compression garments, wear them for a couple of hours a day initially and gradually increase the time for wearing them.
COMPLIANCE IS VERY IMPORTANT IN ACHIEVING THERAPEUTIC RESULTS
Correct sizing + Correct garment = RESULTS
