AND HOW GRADIENT COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED GRADIENT COMPRESSION
Painful and Uncomfortable Edema
Edema is the medical term for what is commonly referred to as swelling. Peripheral or pedal edemas are swelling that occurs in the legs, feet, and ankles and can often occur when a person spends a majority of their day either sitting or standing. Edemas can also occur from athletic injury, venous insufficiency, pregnancy, or poor blood circulation. This swelling can be painful and may lead to more dangerous conditions such as deep vein thrombosis.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Relief of Edema Symptoms
Compression hosiery and socks are one of the best ways to treat peripheral or pedal edemas. The graduated pressure from gradient compression helps the body to absorb excess fluid. It also encourages blood to flow back to the heart improving circulation. It can help to repair tissue damage with the increase in oxygen. Finally, compression can help to prevent more serious health conditions such as DVT.
