Why Graduated Compression

Graduated compression is based on the simple and efficient mechanical principle: the application of an elastic garment around the leg.

Graduated compression applies the strongest amount of pressure at the ankle and slowly decreases moving up the leg – the compression stocking helps the flow of blood in your veins to move back to your heart – effectively relieving aching and heavy legs as well as managing and preventing various vein related diseases.

Benefits of Compression

Compression stockings and socks provide external support to the vein walls and work in conjunction with the calf muscle pump. The help minimize and control swelling and leg pain. Unless otherwise instructed by a medical professional, stockings should be worn during the day, while you are active.

Maintain Health Legs for Life

Graduated compression garments are for every day wear. Whether you are on your feet all day, travel a lot or are pregnant, the wearing of compression stockings or socks helps promote leg health and provide relief from a range of common symptoms including tired aching legs, swollen feet and ankles and can prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) during long distance travel.

Support Your Pregnancy

During pregnancy, a women’s body goes through many changes, including an increase in blood volume and fluid. This fluid may cause swelling, often in legs, ankles and feet. If have symptoms these symptom’s then graduated compression can help reduce these issues significantly.

For Medical

We will also educate you on the compliance of wearing compression stockings. Congdon’s offers custom made graduated medical compression garments. With a prescription from your doctor Congdon’s will have a compression garment made for legs and arms in all compression levels.

What is Lymphedema?

Lymphedema is a chronic condition in which excess fluid (lymph) collects in tissues causing edema (swelling). Lymphedema occurs when your lymph vessels are unable to drain the lymph fluid, usually from an arm or leg. Lymphedema can be either primary meaning it can be present at birth or may develop later in life. Or secondary meaning it can occur after Surgery, Radiation Treatment, Cancer, Infection or injury.

Treatment for lymphedema depends on its cause and includes wearing compression garments such as stockings or sleeves, plus proper diet and skin care, and fluid drainage. Congdon’s can help…
