Swelling

Build-up of fluid in the body’s tissues, often occurring in the lower leg and ankle, is called swelling or edema. Painless swelling may be caused by some medications, injury, vein problems, heart problems or other reasons. Prolonged swelling should not be ignored, as it may be a sign of serious disease or chronic venous insufficiency.

Symptoms of edema

  • Enlarged ankles and calf (lower leg may appear puffy)
  • Discomfort or tired legs
  • Decreased mobility (leg may feel heavy)
  • Decreased skin elasticity

Mild swelling is often managed with 15-20 mmHg compression. Moderate and severe swelling may require higher compression. Please consult with your physician.

Remember to talk with your doctor or health care provider before wearing compression 20 mmHg and greater.

Vericose Veins

Varicose veins can be mild to severe. They are caused from the backflow or pooling of blood in a damaged vein. They may occur as the result of heredity or develop during pregnancy.

Symptoms of varicose veins

  • Bulging veins
  • Aching and discomfort in the leg
  • Leg heaviness and fatigue
  • Inflammation of a superficial vein

20-30 mmHg is the most commonly selected level of compression for varicose veins. The compression level that is best for you will depend on the severity of your symptoms. Please consult with your physician.

Remember to talk with your doctor or health care provider before wearing compression 20 mmHg and greater.

Venous Insufficiency

Damaged valves in the veins can cause blood to pool in the leg and lead to swelling and discomfort. This condition is called chronic venous insufficiency, and can lead to skin damage and leg ulcers.

Symptoms of CVI

  • Varicose veins
  • Daily swelling of the leg
  • Skin color changes around and above the ankle region
  • Dermatitis
  • Fragile skin – opens easily with minor trauma

CVI can be effectively managed by wearing gradient compression stockings daily. The 30-40 mmHg knee length compression stocking is the most widely prescribed stocking for chronic venous insufficiency.
