Venous insufficiency is caused by a series of disorders in the vein, including when the valves of the veins fail to function properly. This interferes with venous return and causes blood to pool in the veins. Venous insufficiency can become more chronic and lead to spider veins, varicose veins, blood clots and changes in the skin, including leg ulcers.

Wearing graduated compression stockings or compression socks daily will help with the management and will reduce the progression of venous disorders. How does it work; the contraction and relaxation of the calf muscles around the veins aid in moving blood towards the heart. The external graduated compression stockings act as a layer of muscle by gently squeezing the stretched vein walls together, allowing the valves to close. The cavity of the vein is reduced thereby restoring blood flow to a normal state and aiding overall circulation. To be most effective, the compression stockings or socks should be put on at the start of your day and removed before you go to bed.
