Long periods of standing or sitting every day and little physical exercise increase the pressure on the venous system. Genetic predispositions and hormonal factors cause the veins to distend even further. The valves can no longer close. Unfortunately, distended veins cannot be restored to their original state. A doctor can remove them surgically or sclerose them, or prescribe a compression garment.

Compression garments act as a layer of muscle by gently squeezing the stretched vein walls together, allowing the valves to close. The cavity of the vein is reduced, thereby restoring blood flow to a normal state and aiding overall circulation.

To be most effective, the garments should be put on at the start of your day and removed before you go to bed. Some people have an inherited weakness of the vein walls or valves which creates additional challenges to venous return. Wearing compression garments is vital for the prevention and treatment of varicose veins and other circulatory problems.
