The support stockings we offer at Vein Doctors Group can be used to:

  • Prevent the development of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) during long distance flights
  • Support venous function and reduce the likelihood of developing varicose veins during pregnancy
  • Alleviate symptoms associated with venous disorders
  • Support the success of vein treatments.

Support stockings apply external pressure to the leg and are designed to assist the return of blood flow upwards to the heart.

These stockings are designed to give the greatest support at the ankle, and gradually decrease in pressure all the way up to the thigh. This gives better support than traditional bandages, and recent innovations in design and materials means that these stockings are comfortable enough to wear every day.

At Vein Doctors Group we provide Class 2 Compression Stockings. Class 2 Compression Stockings are utilised to relieve more severe discomfort, support pronounced varicose veins with oedema, help heal ulcers, treat superficial thrombophlebitis, increase the effectiveness of sclerotherapy treatment and to support severe varicose veins during pregnancy. 

These stockings can be machine washed (a laundry bag is recommended) in lukewarm water, but do not tumble dry, bleach, dry clean or iron your stockings. Private Health Fund Extras members may receive a rebate on these stockings. Our team will measure you to ensure the correct fit.
