Q & A
After receiving treatment, your healthcare provider may direct you to wear compression stockings for a period of time to aid in the healing process and reduce discomfort and swelling. These stockings are designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, thus aiding in blood flow regulation. It is imperative to follow the provider’s instructions and wear the stockings for the recommended duration and time of day. Proper usage of compression stockings is crucial for reducing the risk of deep vein thrombosis.
For 2 to 3 days following the treatment, avoid:
