The Compression Evolution
For many decades, compression garments have been a well-kept medical secret. They’ve been integrated into the medical care process, and primarily used by medical specialists such as vascular and orthopedic surgeons to help avoid blood clots post-surgery.
Historically, and even now, compression garments are worked into the patient care process and billed to the patient; often being covered by insurance. The level of compression used during this critical time in the care cycle, is normally very high. In other words, while an average healthy person may only benefit from, and need, 15mmHg of compression, a compression garment used immediately post-surgery is normally upward toward 60 mmHg of compression.
This is where it gets interesting, and a little controversial. Since insurance reimbursement has been involved for many years, very often, charges for these compression garments are significantly inflated to cover all of the associated administration expenses. Compression technology has been medically proven as necessary to certain medical procedures, to significantly reduce pain and the risk of death.
Over the years, patients noticed that compression garments helped relieve chronic pain, and they also were encouraged to buy compression socks for varicose veins, or to avoid Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT); especially those traveling on airplanes, or engaged in long haul truck or car rides. Great momentum has built on the consumer front, and many compression manufacturers have worked very hard to make these garments more affordable, comfortable and attractive.
Now, compression garments of all types are available and used by many people as a part of everyday life; to reduce pain, reduce health risks, and to improve athletic performance and recovery. A person can find compression dress socks, compression athletic recovery socks, full arm sleeves for athletes or lymphedema or for recovery from elective aesthetic surgery, compression gauntlets for hand pain, yet with open fingers to enable hand productivity, athletic performance, as well as fashionable compression full panty hose!
