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.

The heart wants what the heart wants, ask any women, and she’ll say she wants chocolate this Valentine’s Day.  I wonder why this is?  Could it be because chocolate is delicious and melts in your mouth.  Well yes.  But could it also be because chocolate has a greater purpose for your body?  YES. Dark chocolate has been proven to help with circulatory health, according to Everyday Health article listed below.

Did you know?  Pregnant women who eat dark chocolate every day can improve the circulatory health for both their babies and themselves! According to Everyday Health, 

“Pregnant women who nibble just a small piece of chocolate each day may improve the circulatory health of their unborn child, a new study suggests.  The tiny treat may also reduce the risk for preeclampsia, a potentially deadly condition in which a pregnant woman with normal blood pressure suddenly develops dangerously high blood pressure”.

So while you are considering what to get for Valentine’s day, treat your tastebuds and your body with some love and get yourself dark chocolate!  Also, don’t forget to wear  your compression stockings to help with circulatory health as well!  They’ll help you feel rejuvenated, and trust me, your legs with thank you!

What is Edema?

Compression is used by patients that suffer from a condition known as Edema.  Edema is the result of an accumulation of fluid under the skin and most of the time affects the circulation in a person’s lower legs, ankles, and feet, causing obvious swelling.

How does compression work?

The use of compression stockings, sleeves, and athletic socks helps increase blood flow by applying pressure to the lower legs, providing a firm grip on the ankles, and decreases the pressure as it progresses up the leg.

Who uses compression stockings?

A myriad of people use compression to help them treat their case of Edema.  Edema is caused by several different factors such as:

  • Varicose veins
  • Sports injuries
  • Pregnancy
  • Surgery
  • Sitting or standing for prolonged period

If you suffer from swelling in your lower legs, ankles or feet, talk to your doctor about compression stockings.
