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.
