Compression Socks for Oedema

Have you recently been diagnosed with oedema? If so, then you might find that wearing graduated compression socks or stockings helps with oedema treatment by reducing the swelling and tenderness. Many people have found that TXG Compression Socks have helped them deal with the impact of oedema as well as with other painful health conditions and injuries.

WHAT IS OEDEMA?

Oedema is a medical condition that occurs when fluid builds up in tissue in a part of the body, most commonly in the legs, ankles and arms (peripheral oedema). It’s much more severe than the mild swelling most people experience after many hours of being on their feet. Oedema is often accompanied by pain, stiffness and weight gain which collectively can hamper movement, leading to even more stiffness and weight gain due to inactivity. Oedema can occur as a side effect of other conditions such as pregnancy and kidney/heart or liver disease. Oedema can also occur when taking certain medications such as contraceptive pills, corticosteroids or hypertension medication. It’s also been known to occur after injury or surgery to the legs/arms.

Your doctor might recommend light exercise, massage as well as elevating your limbs to decrease the swelling. However, if a blockage in your lymphatic system occurs, lymphoedema can also occur which is a more serious, long-term condition than peripheral oedema.

In both bases, our graduated compression socks will be helpful in decreasing your swelling and any resulting discomfort.

HOW DO GRADUATED COMPRESSION SOCKS HELP TREAT OEDEMA?

Research shows that oedema can be prevented and swelling decreased by wearing a compression sock with a pressure as low as 8mmHg. This results in a measurable reduction in the volume and circumference of the limb impacted by the condition. You will feel instant relief, allowing you to stay mobile and reducing your need for pain medications and their unpleasant side effects.

Diane's TXG Sock Feedback

"They are great, stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I will always wear them now."

 

"I've been doing an Alpine tramp over Cascade Saddle in Aspiring National Park & I wore the TXG compression socks. They are great. Stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I endured no lactose build up in my calf muscles despite the very steep ascent and descent. I will always wear them now and have recommended them to my tramping friends."

Reena's TXG Sock Feedback

"After a long shift, my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore."

 

"After me being on my feet for 24 hours and wearing the TXG compression socks for that length of time; my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore. I wasn’t as physically tired either as I usually would be after working a 12-hour shift at the hospital. The socks are wonderful and far exceeded my expectations."

Aroha's feedback on her TXG sleeves

"I love my arm and calf sleeves, they help me at hockey"

 

"I purchased some arm sleeves and calf sleeves and love them. Trialled them out last week during my many games of hockey and at an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament to see if they’ll help me at my next hockey tournament and I can safely say yes, I especially love the arm sleeves keeping my forearms from tightening which is so important when dribbling. They also help at the gym during any arm work where I grip tightly and my forearms tighten. Usually, I would fatigue and be forced to stop, but I get far more out of my arms."

Paula's feedback on her TXG socks

"I am able to stand longer during the day and I am less tired at the end of the day."

 

"Before I started wearing them I would notice that I had a varicose vein that would stand out on my lower leg. I wear my socks all day and at the end of the day when I take them off, there is no vein standing out on my leg. The spider veins are still there but even those are less prominent too I am able to stand longer during the day as well. They are probably one of the best things I have bought."
