SIGVARIS® Compression Stocking Therapy

Sigvaris Compression Stockings

What is compression therapy?

Compression therapy is the application of external pressure to the limb to reduce venous pressure within the limb. Compression is greatest at the ankle, gradually decreasing up the leg. Wearing graduated socks or stockings will support your veins and increase circulation, reducing swelling and the feeling of tired, achy legs. To be most effective, the socks or stockings should be put on at the start of your day and removed before you go to bed.

Remember, the heart pumps blood against gravity up the veins of the legs. As a person walks, the contraction and relaxation of the calf muscles around the veins are necessary to help move blood toward the heart.

Some people have an inherited weakness of the vein walls or valves which create additional challenges to venous circulation. Wearing SIGVARIS® compression socks or stockings is vital for the prevention and treatment of varicose veins and other circulatory problems, especially for individuals who are at risk.

SIGVARIS® Sports:

uses the basic principle of true graduated compression with the strongest pressure at the ankle. When blood is properly circulated, it restores much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been deprived during a workout. SIGVARIS SPORTS products help muscles regenerate more efficiently and to remove any lactic acid that has built up.
