Compression therapy for venous leg ulcers and varicose veins refer to prescription snug-fitting material stockings. Much more advanced than a bandage, they are designed for the purpose of reducing reflux, increasing the blood flow of an individual and pushing the vein’s blood back upward through the vein capillaries. In doing this, the patient can relieve symptoms from vein disease such as edema or even prevent deep vein thrombosis.
