Medical Compression Socks

Medical Compression Socks - Dr. Misa Kawasaki, ND

Whether you have a medical condition that requires compression socks or you're looking for an athletic performance boost, we’ve got you covered!

We are proud to carry Achi and Sigvaris medical graduated compression wear at Meridian Spine + Sport with both conservative or fashion-forward styles available.

 

All compression wear is custom ordered based on your specific leg measurements. They should feel snug yet comfortable.

Can Anyone Wear Compression Socks?

Yes! Most of us spend long hours sitting down or standing which compromises our circulation. Many patients report that they feel more energetic, lighter and their legs feel less tired or achy when they wear compression socks regularly. If you travel frequently plane, commute by car or are pregnant, compression socks can help reduce the swelling in your ankles and feet at the end of the day.​

Compression Socks are an integral part of treatment for these conditions:

  • Edema (swelling)

  • Varicose veins and spider veins

  • Chronic peripheral venous insufficiency

  • Deep vein thrombosis

  • Lymphedema

  • Phlebitis

If you have been diagnosed by your physician for any of the above, compression socks and stockings can greatly help manage your condition.

Medical compression socks are covered by most extended health care plans. Check with your provider for details. You will need a prescription from a medical doctor for reimbursement from your insurance company. Socks range from $110-$135 per pair and stockings start at $180.
