Compression Stockings Therapy Toronto & Etobicoke
Compression stockings can be prescribed by your physician or our chiropodist. To order the right stocking a measurement will be performed.
They work on the concept of application of external pressure to the limb to reduce venous pressure within the limb. 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.
Compression stockings are medical devices unless the pressure level is minimal. We encourage our clients to contact their insurance provider and inquire if they are covered under their coverage. Some insurance companies may require a prescription detailing the size and pressure level from a physician or a specialist.
