DVT is a condition experienced when people sit in a stationary position in a confined space for a long time, such as in a long car ride or an airplane flight.
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
Backs in Action Wellness Center, an East Van chiropractor clinic, has recently announced that it will now be offering graded compression hosiery therapy for clients that suffer from DVT or Deep Vein Thrombosis. This is a condition experienced when people sit in a stationary position in a confined space for a long time, such as in a long car ride or an airplane flight. This troubles the circulatory system leading to DVT. Backs in Action now provides gradient compression hosiery therapy in order to relieve patients from the fatigue, pain and swelling caused by this life threatening disease.
“Compression Hosiery applies high pressure starting at the ankle which gradually decreases going to the upper leg,” states a representative from Backs in Action while explaining the compression therapy. “This graded pressure helps maintain normal blood flow during long flights and extended sitting periods. Compression hosiery helps to decrease the size of your veins to minimize blood pooling. Compression Hosiery also reinforces the pumping action of the calf muscles thus reducing leg discomfort.”
Backs in Action provides compression therapy that is customized for each client, depending on their overall health and lifestyle. The therapy is available for both, people who need compression stockings for pregnancy and those who need it for travel. In addition, the compression therapy Vancouver can also be beneficial for the following:
- People who need to sit/stand for long periods of time
- Long distance travelers
- Pregnant women
- People that have varicose or spider veins
- People that experience swelling in their legs and feet
