Dr. Magnant strongly encourages his patients to initiate compression therapy as soon as the clinical diagnosis of significant venous insufficiency is either strongly suspected or confirmed. There are a number of exceptions to the conservative trial rule. These exceptions include active ulceration or recurrent bleeding, in which cases treatment should be performed earlier.
Compression therapy through the use of compression stockings is a conservative vein treatment option and is available at Vein Specialist in Fort Myers and Bonita Springs locations. Unlike other treatments used for varicose veins, compression therapy is not a procedure. Rather, it simply entails wearing medical-grade compression stockings to relieve the symptoms of venous insufficiency.
Some signs & symptoms of vein disease that could benefit from compression therapy include:
- Spider & Variose Veins
- Swollen Achy Legs
- Skin Discoloration
- “Piano Legs” or “Cankles” (disproportionately thick calves or ankles)
- Thickening of the Skin Around the Ankles
- Night Time Leg Cramps
- Restless Legs
- Night Time Urination
Although compression stockings can be bought in a variety of places, the best way to take advantage of this conservative vein treatment option is to visit the experienced providers at Vein Specialists in Fort Meyers and Bonita Springs. Compression stockings should be specifically measured to your legs and should not be given to anyone else to use.
Compression stockings are available in a variety of lengths including knee-high, thigh-high, and panty-high. Vein Specialists in Fort Myers and Bonita Springs also offer compression therapy stockings in many different colors. Compression stocking therapy allows you to treat your leg vein issues continually throughout the day and will give your legs the temporary relief you are searching for.
When considering leg vein therapy options, insurance companies often require a conservative vein treatment trial such as compression therapy before considering more definitive vein treatments such as endovenous albaltion or VenaSeal™ vein treatments.
If you are overwhelmed with treatment options for your painful leg vein concerns, compression therapy is an excellent place to start; it is a conservative, non-invasive option that will only benefit your health. The vein professionals at Vein Specialists locations in Fort Myers and Bonita Springs are ready to meet with you to discuss your concerns, treatment options, and measure you for your very own pair of compression stockings.
