Compression garments are necessary to treat varicose veins because they help to improve circulation and reduce swelling in the legs.

Varicose veins occur when the valves in the veins that are responsible for pushing blood back to the heart become weak or damaged. As a result, blood can flow backwards and pool in the legs, causing the veins to become enlarged and twisted. The increased pressure in the veins can also lead to swelling and discomfort.

Compression garments work by applying gentle pressure to the legs, helping to squeeze the veins and push blood back towards the heart. This improves circulation and helps to reduce the pooling of blood in the legs, reducing swelling and discomfort. The compression also helps to support the weakened or damaged valves in the veins, preventing them from becoming worse. Vein Specialists Dr. Draughn will be able to recommend the best treatment option for an individual based on their specific condition.

Sigvaris compression garments are often prescribed by for patients with conditions such as varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, and lymphedema. The garments come in different levels of compression, with higher levels providing more support and reducing swelling more effectively. They are available in a variety of styles, including knee-highs, thigh-highs, and pantyhose, and can be made from different materials such as nylon or cotton.
