Compression Stockings at Pacific Physiotherapy in Guelph, Mississauga, & Hamilton

After a thorough assessment, your physiotherapist at Pacific Physiotherapy in Guelph, Mississauga, & Hamilton may recommend a specialized medical device. Compression stockings may be ideal to support your healing journey or prevent re-injury.

Do You Need Compression Stockings for Circulation, Injury Recovery, or Complication Prevention?

Compression stockings help improve blood flow in your legs by applying even gentle pressure so blood doesn’t pool in your veins. Your physiotherapist will recommend compression stockings if you have venous insufficiency or are recovering from surgery. With better circulation, swelling (edema) goes down in your feet and legs.

Compression stockings support injured muscles and tissues, help reduce pain and inflammation, and facilitate healing. They help stabilize your legs with a feeling of greater support, which many find comforting during recovery.

If you have mobility issues, you may be at risk of developing blood clots in your legs. Compression stockings maintain circulation to reduce the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).

Patients with swelling from lymphatic fluid buildup benefit from compression stockings to reduce swelling and prevent complications. After surgery, especially orthopedic operations, compression stockings help prevent complications like blood clots and reduce postoperative swelling.

Compression stockings can even help athletes improve sports performance by enhancing blood flow and reducing muscle fatigue!
