Elliot’s Closet Community Service Event

IMG_6032              Joshua and I

One of the non-profit’s All About Compression supports is Elliot’s closet. They believe every child deserves to feel good going back to school. So they put on a fun summer event where kids get to come “shopping for back-to-school clothes” for free. They collect new and gently used clothing all year long, then set up a store in July for underprivileged kids to use fake money and purchase clothes they like from the store. This event promoted fun, education, dignity and pride to Arizona kids. We were happy to be a part of this great organization and event. Here are a few stats from the event…1412 items of clothing collected, 420 pairs of new socks & 300 pieces of new underwear donated, and shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and healthy snacks given out to kids ranging from 4-12yrs old.

Guide to Compression

Are you new to wearing compression, or have you owned compression gear and felt that it cost more than it was worth?  The benefits of wearing compression will only be revealed to the wearer if they are following these 5 rules:

1.) Make sure you are wearing the right size- get measured!

cropped-aac-tradeshow-header-and-logo.jpg

At All About Compression, we do our best to fit each patient in the right sizes for their body, accounting for the length of their legs, the circumference of their calves and ankles, and the shoe size of the wearer. The best way to ensure daily compliance- which is rule number 2!

2.) The more you wear it, the better you feel.

sigvaris-cotton-men-calfCompression stockings/socks are no use to you sitting in your sock drawer. If you are going to invest in compression gear, wearing it daily, whether you are on your feet all day, or sitting at your office desk, they will make your legs feel so much better.

3.) Do NOT wear your compression while asleep unless instructed to for surgical purposes.

Unless you get specific instructions from your provider to wear your compression gear while you are asleep, it is not good for you to wear them when your feet and your heart are at the same level.  Compression works to pump the blood back up to your heart to help work against gravity and increase circulation in your body, this is unnecessary when you are not working against gravity.

4.) Don’t settle; there are options!

Think about the colors, the patterns, the comfort of the different choices available to you!  Why settle for the drugstore brand compression stockings that will be itchy, lose their compression faster, and leave you wishing you never bought them, when you could find a pair that complements you and makes your legs sing with joy!

5.) Remember to love your body and give it the help it needs.

Prevent DVT

As we come to the end of National Blood Clot Awareness Month, we wanted to provide one more reminder to wear compression in order to avoid developing Deep Vein Thrombosis.  Prevention is the key: wear compression stockings or compression socks when traveling on airplanes or driving on road trips to aid in the prevention of blood clots!

It is very important to understand that Deep Vein Thrombosis is a very serious condition that dramatically affects a large portion of the population within the United States.  According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), blood clots are responsible for 60,000 deaths annually within the United States, and 25% of those deaths were not aware that they even had a blood clot. Protect yourself and take precautionary action to prevent blood clots from forming by wearing compression socks or stockings.

Are you confused about Deep Vein Thrombosis and how it forms in your body?  Click on the link below to learn more about it through a video diagram that walks you through the process: How DVT Forms.
