We custom-order therapeutic gradient compression hosiery by Therafirm and Core-Spun. Compression socks or stockings can help prevent venous circulation issues, and can help slow down the progression of existing venous or lymphatic issues. These issues can include leg fatigue and aching, swelling, edema, varicosities, spider veins, deep vein thrombosis, post-surgical recovery, and risk factors (diabetes, obesity, smoker, over age 40, pregnancy, frequent long flights). Many styles look like regular casual socks, trouser socks, or tights. Many types are covered under Extended Health Care Plans, under Paramedical Benefits as “elastic support hoisery” or “compression hoisery”.
Dr. Val is certified to asses for and custom-fit compression socks and stockings.
