What is Compression Therapy?
Compression therapy is a therapy based on the mechanical principle of applying an elastic garment on the leg. The compression stocking, through graduated compression on the area, acts as a sort of layer of muscle squeezing the vein walls altogether. This allows the restoration of the blood flow to a normal level, which helps the overall circulation.
