DOWNTOWN TORONTO CHIROPODIST AND FOOT SPECIALIST DISCUSSES COMPRESSION STOCKINGS

COMPRESSION STOCKINGS ARE DESIGNED TO REMEDY IMPAIRED "MUSCULOVENOUS PUMP" PERFORMANCE CAUSED BY INCOMPETANT LEG VEIN VALVES.  THEY ARE DESIGNED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE COMPRESSION LEVEL IS HIGHEST AROUND THE ANKLE AND DECREASES TOWARDS THE TOP OF THE HOSE.  DOCTORS, PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS WILL RECOMMEND THESE STOCKINGS FOR THOSE WHO ARE PRONE TO BLOOD CLOTS,LOWER LIMB EDEMA, AND BLOOD POOLING IN THE LEGS AND FEET FROM PERIODS OF PROLONGED SITTING OR INACTIVITY.  THEY ARE ALSO WORN MANY TIME BY DIABETIC  PATIENTS AND THOSE WHO ARE AT INCREASED RISK OF CIRCULATORY PROBLEMS, WHOSE LEGS ARE PRONE TO EXCESSIVE SWELLING.

THEY ARE SOMETIMES WORN BY WOMEN DURING PREGNANCY AS THE HORMONES RELEASED AND THE EXPANDING UTERUS CAN PUT PRESSURE ON THE INFERIOR VENA CAVA (THE MAJOR VEIN RETURNING BLOOD UO TO THE HEART) CAN AFFECT THE VEINS AND CAUSE SWELLING.  IN THESE CASES COMPRESSION STOCKINGS CAN BE VERY HELPFUL.

THE BRAND OF STOCKING THAT WE USE ARE CALLED JOBST  COMPRESSION STOCKINGS ARE OF THE BEST QUALITY.  ALL OF OUR FOOT SPECIALISTS HAVE TAKEN SPECIAL COURSES IN THE FITTING AND DETERMINING THE CORRECT COMPRESSION VALUE FOR EACH PATIENT.  THE COMPRESSION CAN VARY FROM FROM 20 mmHg TO OVER 50 mmHg AND MUST BE DETERMINED BY A HEALTH CARE SPECIALIST WHO HAS BEEN SPECIFICALLY TRAINED.  YOU CAN BE SURE THAT AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS YOU WILL RECEIVE THE BEST POSSIBLE TREATMENT AND PRODUCTS FROM ORTHOPEDIC FOOTWEAR, CUSTOM ORTHOTICS OR COMPRESSION STOCKINGS.  WE STAND BEHIND OUR SERVICE AND PRODUCTS 100%.
