Compression Stocking for Varicose Veins. Varicose Veins means unnaturally and permanently distended veins.It is a disease of circulatory system.The human body has two kinds of Blood Vessels Arteries & veins. Arteries carry oxygenated blood from heart to body parts and veins carry de-oxygenated blood back towards heart.Due to long vertical gap between the heart and the legs the veins have to carryblood up a long vertical column. For making the job easier the nature has broken the vertical column in to small sections by providing a number of one way valvesin the veins.Due to certain factors some times the valves become inefficient,the walls of the veins loose their elasticity and become permanently distended.This condition is known as: Varicose Veins.
Graduated compression stockings helps in this case.
