JOBST Compression Stockings

The Vascular Experts Florida offers JOBST compression stockings & socks for both patients of the practice and anyone in the Greater Orlando area who needs them.

Compression stockings work by squeezing the soft tissues in the legs as well as the walls of the veins to improve blood flow and decrease swelling that can happen after prolonged periods of sitting or standing.

Why JOBST Compression Stockings?

JOBST Compression Stockings are crucial in recovery from many vascular treatments, especially the closure of varicose veins and spider veins, to ensure optimal healing after the procedure is complete. Compression stockings can also work to alleviate many symptoms of venous disease, prevent blood clots from forming and reduce pain and swelling. JOBST is the industry leader for compression stockings, and has been setting extremely high standards of quality since 1950. They are committed to providing effective compression therapy for patients with venous and lymphatic diseases as well as anyone who is interested in finding relief from prolonged sitting or standing.

Where to Buy Compression Stockings

Compression stockings must be tailored to each patient to achieve a proper fit and ensure adequate results. The Vascular Experts Florida is an authorized retailer of JOBST compression stockings and our staff has been properly trained in measuring our patients and clients to recommend the perfect size and fit. While patients may be tempted to purchase compression stockings online or at general pharmacies or supermarkets, those stockings will not provide the necessary level of compression.

At The Vascular Experts Florida’s Windermere Office we have the most popular styles and designs for men and women and have swatches of all available JOBST stockings. If your style or size is not in stock, we can coordinate expedited shipping to your home so no time is wasted!

How to Use Compression Stockings

While compression stockings are safe and effective, you can increase the relief by using them properly. Some things to keep in mind include:
  • Wear them properly – Compression stockings may seem straightforward, but consult with your vein expert and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure you are using them properly. Never let your stockings go above the designated height, and keep them from bunching up towards the top – this can prevent the blood from flowing properly.
  • Replace When Necessary – Once your compression stockings become loose, replace them right away. Most can last for four to six months before needing replacement.
  • Never Wear While Sleeping – Compression stockings should never be worn while asleep unless you are specifically instructed to do so by Dr. Vargas following some venous procedures.

Our trusted team at The Vascular Experts Florida can direct you on the best stockings for your needs. Anyone interested in purchasing stockings can do so, regardless of if you’re a regular patient of Dr. Vargas and The Vascular Experts Florida.
