Compression Therapy for Venous Diseases

JOBST UK>Products>Compression Therapy for Venous Diseases

Compression Is the Key to Managing Your Condition

Venous diseases affect approximately every three in four adults worldwide. Their frequency increases with age. Standing or sitting professions, pregnancy, being overweight, but also genetic factors can all impair the normal function of your veins and vein valves. Regardless of the underlying condition, compression therapy is the key element of treating venous diseases.

JOBST offers a wide range of made-to-measure and ready-to-wear garments, compression bandages, and adjustable compression devices (also called compression wraps) for various venous diseases.

In the following sections, we summarise the most important information for a better understanding of the venous system and how venous diseases develop.

What Are Venous Diseases and What Causes Them?

There are various types of venous diseases, such as heavy legs, spider veins, varicose veins, and venous oedema. Untreated venous diseases can result in leg ulcers - these are non-healing sores or open wounds that mainly occur around the ankle. Swelling of the leg can also be caused by deep vein thrombosis - a serious condition in which the formation of a blood clot blocks blood flow. The veins in your legs need to transport the blood back to the heart. With every step, the muscle pump in your leg squeezes the deep veins in your calves. The vein valves support the transport of blood from one venous segment to the next. Venous insufficiency means that the vein valves don’t work properly. Instead of transporting the blood back to the heart, the blood pools in the veins of your calves. This, in turn, can cause venous diseases. You can find more information about the anatomy of the venous system, plus the causes and symptoms of venous diseases here.
