Support Stockings

At Medineeds we offer a Lower Limb Circulation Assessment with our Podiatrist who can advise, measure and fit your support stockings.

What are Support Stockings?

Support Stockings also known as Compression Stockings are specially designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow and reduce discomfort and swelling.

They may be prescribed if you have a condition that causes poor blood flow in your legs, such as:

  • varicose veins (swollen and enlarged veins)
  • lymphoedema (when your body's tissues swell up)

If you have been prescribed support stockings for a condition that affects your circulation, you may need to wear them for several years or, in some cases, the rest of your life.

What to expect during an appointment?

Our Podiatrist will ask you questions about you, your medication and overall health. They will perform an assessment to check the blood flow to your feet and lower legs and advise you if you require support stockings.

Support stockings are available in different strengths of compression, sizes, lengths and colours. Our Podiatrist will discuss this with you.

Your legs will be measured to see what size stockings you need and fitted. You may need to wear them on both legs, or just on one.
