Our team offers high-quality compression hose to support healthy circulation in your legs.
Here at York Foot Orthotics and Bracing, we want to help you alleviate pain in your feet and legs, as well as prevent any medical problems such as blood clots. One product that can help achieve both those goals is compression hose. Compression hose are essentially just what they sound like– a type of stocking that is designed to put pressure on your lower limbs, which encourages improved circulation to that area. The arteries, which deliver oxygen-rich blood to the muscles, get to relax and let the blood flow freely to your lower legs and feet, while the veins, which pump oxygen-poor blood back to the heart, get a boost that helps them do their job more effectively.
There are many people who can benefit from wearing compression hose. If you work a desk job or any job that requires you to be in one position for long periods of time, compression hose can improve your circulation and reduce your risk of blood clots. Similarly, if you are on bed rest, have a hard time moving your legs, or spend a lot of time on airplanes, wearing compression socks can help you in the same way. Compression hose can also help prevent the aches and soreness that come from standing all day, and they can reduce the swelling and ankle pain associated with pregnancy.
Our team is proud to serve the Collingwood, Ontario community, and we want to help you do what’s best for your health and comfort. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of our compression hose, we encourage you to give us a call.
