Compression or Support Hosiery/Pantyhose

What is a compression/support pantyhose and how does it work?
The heart in the body forces blood away from the heart pump into the arteries and veins. Arteries carry the blood away from the heart while the veins return the blood to the heart. The veins has valves that open to allow blood to flow back to the heart and close to prevent blood flowing backward. When the valves are overworked and not closing normally, the circulation problems begin. The compression/support hose works like an external pump to assist the valves by closing it normally.

Did you think that compression/support hosiery is not for you?
Compression/Support pantyhoses are for everyone! Compression/Support hose is available for men and women in a large variety, styles and colors. Lighter graduated compressions hose will keep your legs feeling healthy and energetic all day by stimulating blood circulation. Medium to strong compression hose are for prevention and therapy of varicose veins, venous diseases and cellulite. And I stress the word prevention. 

Graduated compression support hose and compression hosiery are the medically-accepted way to relieve minor leg pain related to swelling, venous insufficiency, deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins or other conditions.

Compression support hosiery works in a way that causes external compression to apply controlled pressure to the skin. This then supports the superficial venous system, helping to reduce the increased hydrostatic pressure and redress the balance between the deep and superficial veins. This helps in reducing edema and aiding venous return. 

So guys and gals, if you want to have healthy looking legs (less the vericose veins), wear your compression or support pantyhose regularly. Guys ... do not be afraid to wear your hose openly. Men used to wear hose in the early centuries and those are definitely more uncomfortable than the pantyhoses available today.
