Mens Support Stockings

Women are not the only ones who have jobs that require long periods of standing or sitting and men need mens support stockings just as much as women do.

When the legs have been injured or illness has set in, the veins valves can become weak, allowing blood to seep back down the legs causing swelling, pain and a feeling of full legs. Many times with the beginnings of circulation problems elevating the legs after a long day can alleviate the problems. If it is happening continually then perhaps a visit to your doctor is in order so they can determine how severe the problem is and they can recommend compression stockings or socks.

 

The real problem begins when you have had circulation problems and the possibility of deep vein thrombosis sets in. This is where blood clots form in the legs creating a sore spot, redness, possible swelling, possible discoloration or any, none or all of these symptoms can be the result. While the blood clot in the leg is not necessarily an emergency, the possibility of it breaking free and traveling to other parts of your body is. These blood clots can break apart, traveling to your heart or even your brain causing possible heart attacks or stroke so in essence they are an emergency situation.

Your doctor may prescribe compression socks, men's support hose, or medical support stockings to help out with the circulation. These types of hose or stockings offer support for the tired veins in the legs and for the small valves, creating an atmosphere where your legs can function and circulate blood normally.

You can avoid some of the problems associated with circulation problems by making sure your staying away from saturated fats, which can harden the veins and arteries. Also, by making sure your exercising regularly, at least three times a week, and allowing movement through small controlled exercise during prolonged periods of standing or sitting.

You'll find plenty of manufactures of support hose for men available and they no longer have to look like women's support hose or socks either. You'll find a wide variety of designs and styles as well as colors available so you can wear them with your slacks without embarrassment.

If your doctor has recommended support hose then you need to find out the type and also the measurement of compression. They come in light support all the way to heavy support and it's usually measured in mmHg, with the lightest being sold over the counter at most major department stores and run up to 20 mmHg. From there you need a prescription from your doctor or at least a recommendation. The highest you can find is 50 mmHg and these need to be fitted properly and should only be worn under the advice of a physician.

Mens support stockings are an important part of your health and with all the colors and designs available you're bound to find a pair you like.
