Just like any other compression garment, compression stockings can be highly beneficial for an array of conditions. However, like any other treatment, they are not good for everyone. Compression stockings could cause problems in these situations if the person has:
Ischemia is characterized by low amounts of oxygen in a person’s limbs due to a peripheral arterial disease. Arteries in such limbs would narrow and even block hence depriving the muscles the much-needed oxygen. Wearing compression stockings could worsen the situation.
Congestive heart failure
This condition is characterized by heart muscles becoming too rigid or stiff to the point of being unable to pump enough blood all over the body. As such, fluid ends up accumulating in legs resulting in edema. A person with benign congestive heart failure might complicate the situation by wearing compression stockings because they exert undue pressure on the blood vessels.
Some of the material used to make compression stockings can evoke allergic reactions in the wearer.
If a person is allergic to Spandex, Nylon, or rubber elements that might be added to improve the functionality of the compression stockings, wearing such a garment would cause problems.
Existing leg injuries
Compression stockings would be inadvisable for a person with open woods, swellings, or any other type of injury on the thighs, knees, and legs. Wearing the stockings can delay the process or inflict harm on otherwise recovering muscles. check this product
Peripheral neuropathy refers to the damage inflicted on the nerve network in your feet, legs, and arms by old age, disease, or any other cause.. If the wearer of compression stockings is significantly older to the point that the skin is delicate enough to allow benign external pressure to affect the nerves, or the person suffers from other health complications that increase the risk of harming the nerves through pressure, such a person would be advised not to wear compression stockings.
