We have 5 Certified Fitters on staff for custom fit compression wear at Mill Plain Medical & Pharmacy. Compression wear should be properly fitted in order to obtain the maximum benefits.
Compression wear reduce the diameter of distended veins and increases venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. Compression therapy helps decrease venous pressure, prevents venous stasis and impairments of venous walls, and relieves heavy and aching legs.
Compression stockings are a specialized hosiery designed to help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of, venous disorders such as edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. Compression stockings are elastic garments worn around the leg or other body part, compressing the limb.
