Compression stockings provide conservative management of varicose veins. The diseased vein is not cured, but the symptoms maybe improved. The tight stockings provide counter pressure over the diseased vein, prevent some of its bulging, and slow its progression over time. Medical grade stockings which require measurement by a certified compression stocking fitter give the best results. At both our Kitchener and Guelph offices, we provide on site fittings and ordering of your stockings. Please call in advance to arrange an appointment for your compression stocking fitting.
The cost of stockings is covered by most insurance plans. Please consult your individual plan to determine your coverage.
