Go With the Flow: 3 Blood Circulation Benefits of Compression Stockings , La Crosse, Wisconsin

Whether you work long shifts on your feet or are suffering from circulation issues, compression stockings can be an invaluable source of physical relief. For over 70 years, Hilton Medical Supply has helped customers in LaCrosse, WI, get the medical supplies they need. From bath benches to power scooters, this trusted medical supply store works with patients and their doctors to provide consultations, answer questions, and ensure the swift delivery of items.

If your doctor has recommended compression stockings to support your legs and veins, minimize swelling from various conditions, or assist with overall circulation, Hilton Medical Supply has the selection and experience to satisfy your needs.  Call today to make an appointment with our certified fitter.

Here are just a few ways you could benefit from wearing compression socks:

  • Improve Venous Blood Flow: Patients with varicose veins often experience pain, swelling, and itching in the affected areas. Compression stockings are designed to be tightest near the foot and ankle, and gradually loosen as they move up the leg. This design reduces the amount of blood pooling near the veins and reverses circulation back towards the heart.compression stockings
  • Prevent & Correct Blood Clots: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)—the development of blood clots in the legs—is a dangerous condition that can ultimately lead to a pulmonary embolism. Patients who are at risk of developing DVT—such as those with circulation problems due to diabetes—should regularly wear compression stockings to prevent blood clots from forming. Patients who already have DVT will be instructed to wear compression stockings before and after corrective surgery, therefore preventing the condition from returning.
  • Decrease Overall Leg Swelling: Swelling in the legs can be caused by extended periods of sitting and standing, as well as hormonal changes such as those during pregnancy. Compression stockings help to reduce the amount of weight and pressure placed on the legs, alleviating a large amount of uncomfortable swelling.

If you are in the LaCrosse, WI, area and need to purchase compression stockings, call Hilton Medical Supply at (608) 785-0390 today. For more information on this therapeutic garment, visit the website.
