Edema, or swelling, in the legs and arms, is a growing problem in an aging population. Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) afflicts one in five adults over 45 in the United States. It is estimated that over 2 million work days are lost annually as a result of CVD. This edema could be caused by surgery, poor circulation, inflammation in the limb or an inherited condition.
At Line Avenue Pharmacy we understand the problems and pain associated with edema and we are here to help. Our over-the-counter compression hose are made specifically to address the problem of edema. These doctor recommended hose and socks are an excellent way to improve circulation and control or prevent edema. The graduated compression works with gravity to produce better circulation and reduces swelling.
If the over-the-counter strengths are not efficient enough we also provide prescription only compression hose and socks. We measure the limb and will fit you with the hosiery according to your doctor’s prescription.
Let us help you with your hosiery needs.
