Avoid Knee High Support Stockings and Compression Stockings

With the type of jobs today you could be in danger of leg circulation problems, especially if you have a job that requires sitting or standing in one place for most of your day. You can alleviate the need for knee high support stockings and compression socks by making sure your using exercises to keep the circulation working properly

 

There are exercises you can do during your sitting job that can help the circulation in your legs withstand the pressure of being in one position. Make sure you frequently lift each leg independently and rotate your ankle then clench you calf muscles as frequently as possible. This type of exercise can increase the circulation in your legs. The calf muscles especially help by the tightening and loosening action of walking. If you can remember to exercise your legs on an hourly basis while sitting at your desk you can alleviate some of the problems associated with aging, illness, and vein problems. Then of course, have a good exercise routine at least 3 times a week and try to stay away from saturated fats.

Standing exercises are similar and while it may look a bit funny, exercising your legs with simulated walking while working at your standing job can really help you avoid the need for compression or knee high support stockings. The more your exercise, the better your overall circulation will be.

Your legs have veins and deep veins inside and they have little valves in them that keep gravity from pushing the blood towards your feet and ankles. As you age, or through illness or injury these small valves may deteriorate causing blood to pool in your ankles, calves, and feet. This can leave you will a dull achy feeling, swelling, and the possibility of deep vein thrombosis, which is where a clot has formed. If you notice a red or unexplained achy spot on your legs or thighs, discoloration, or swelling, it could be a blood clot. This will need medical attention as it may break loose causing the clot to travel throughout other areas of your body.

If you are having circulation problems and your doctor has recommended support stockings, compression socks or even knee high support socks, you'll have a wide variety. They're not like they were in the past, they now come in a wide assortment of styles and designs and some even come in colors. It's important if your doctor has recommended compression, or support hose that you wear them regularly. Take your doctors recommendations and start shopping on the internet for your knee high support stockings, compression socks, and support hose.
