On March 8, PRO Compression responds to an article released by explaining the medical benefits associated with compression stockings, saying that they may be a practical alternative to more invasive treatments for problems like deep vein thrombosis or spider veins.
According to a Bangor Daily News article, “venous disease is one of the most common health problems in the U.S., affecting approximately 50 percent of the population. The condition includes varicose veins, spider veins, or deep vein thrombosis.”
The article claims that the use of compression stockings can help, since they place varying degrees of pressure on an individual’s leg, with the greatest amount of pressure being present at the bottom of the leg and less pressure applied further up the leg. The article asserts that this system of graduated compression assists the blood flow through the veins by limiting the ability of the blood to pool. “This makes it easier for the body to pump blood up towards the heart and more difficult for gravity to pull blood downward.” Patients using compression stockings were reported to have positive results, with some being able to completely correct the problem.
CEO of PRO Compression, Eric Smith, responds to compression garments as a benefit to keep legs healthy. “At PRO Compression we firmly believe in the benefits of graduated compression socks. We primarily market our compression socks to athletes and runners – but the fundamental function that operates to help athletes recover from training can aid circulatory health. Many studies show evidence that compression socks reduce the likelihood of problems such as deep vein thrombosis and blood clots by promoting healthy blood flow. Even people who don't suffer from DVT and other circulatory issues should consider compression garments for long flights and for an occasional boost to the circulatory system.”
