5 Key Benefits of Wearing Compression Stockings

Do you have, or are at a high risk of developing varicose veins? Learn more about the incredible health benefits of wearing Sigvaris compression stockings. 

Did you know that approximately 25% of adults have varicose veins? These enlarged, swollen, and twisting veins often appear blue or dark purple and occur when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to pool or flow in the wrong direction. 

While in many cases varicose veins are a cosmetic concern, they can also cause: 

  • Pain and swelling 
  • Heaviness or aching around the veins 
  • Skin discoloration 
  • Ulcers, sores, blood clots or chronic inflammation

Benefits of Wearing Compression Stockings For Varicose Veins 

Compression stockings are a special type of elastic stockings that supports healthy blood circulation and prevents a variety of problems including spider/varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency. The pressure the stockings put on your legs will help your vein valves function properly and allow the blood to flow unobstructed back to your heart. 

If you already have varicose veins, compression stockings are very effective at alleviating symptoms such as: 

  • Heavy or aching limbs 
  • Swollen feet/ankles
  • Fatigue or pain 
  • Restless legs
  • Night cramps 

Compression stockings provide many health benefits for patients, especially in situations that aggravate venous conditions such as jobs that require prolonged standing/sitting, or when you are travelling on a long haul flight. 


How to Choose The Right Compression Level 

In order for your compression stockings to work effectively, you must always talk to your varicose vein specialist about which compression level you need. There are four main levels: 

  • Mild compression. This is often recommended to patients who have mild chronic venous insufficiency to support healthy blood flow. 
  • Moderate compression. This is often required when you begin experiencing symptoms of spider or varicose veins. 
  • Firm and extra-firm compression. This is recommended for more serious cases of venous diseases including DVTs, leg ulcers, and lymphatic edema.
