Compression socks improve blood circulation, reduce swelling, and alleviate discomfort. Used for various conditions, they enhance vascular health and promote overall leg well-being.
Compression socks, or compression stockings, are specially crafted with medical-grade compression (20-30 mmHg) to snugly fit the lower leg. They provide graduated compression, exerting more pressure at the ankle and less on the calf, facilitating the movement of excess fluid towards the heart.
All Injury Management:
At All Injury Management, our skilled practitioners, including physiotherapists, offer insights into the benefits and applications of compression socks tailored to individual needs.
Understanding Compression Socks:
Designed to enhance circulation, compression socks exert pressure on the veins, aiding in the return of blood to the heart. This is crucial for individuals dealing with conditions like varicose veins, venous insufficiency, and poor circulation in the legs.
80% of our blood is found in the veins.
Legs constantly work under high pressure, and venous valves assist in preventing blood from flowing backward.
Lack of exercise, genetics, or hormonal changes can lead to enlarged veins, causing blood pooling and conditions like varicose veins.
Conditions Requiring Compression Stockings:
Decreasing swelling in the legs and ankles
Poor lymphatic drainage
Poor circulation in legs
Deep Vein Thrombosis
Chronic fatigue in legs (athletes, individuals with standing jobs)
Benefits of Compression Stockings:
Improve circulation in lower extremities
Prevent blood pooling in legs
Help prevent venous ulcers
Improve lymphatic drainage
Enhance energy and bodily function
How Compression Stockings Work:
Compression stockings contribute to managing lower extremity swelling. A combination of treatments, such as physiotherapy, massage therapy, chiropractic care, dry needling/acupuncture, cupping, or kinesiotaping, may be recommended for optimal outcomes.

Laser therapy emits low level laser light to accelerate and promote healing, relieve pain of damaged tissue, and help to reduce inflammation. Laser therapy also helps with the collagen production in the body, which forms connective tissue. Collagen is important for our skin, bones, muscles, tendons, and overall body function.
Electrotherapy focuses on relieving pain, increasing blood flow, reducing swelling, and improving the healing process. IFC can help with the range of motion and restore mobility of muscles of injured areas.
Using a moist heat pack helps target deep into the tissues, as well as increasing circulation around the injured area. This type of heat helps loosen tight muscles and improve mobility, therefore helping the body to heal faster.
Ultrasounding an affected area uses ultrasonic waves and tiny vibrations to improve pain and increase blood flow and circulation. Ultrasound therapy helps promote the healing of tissues and swelling of an affected area.
