Compression stockings are also called as compression socks or compression hosiery. They are socks that compress your legs to increase venous blood flow velocity to the lower extremities. These are specialized medical garments worn around the leg which compresses the limb and exerts pressure which reduces the diameter of the veins. This improves the blood flow and also reduces swelling in the lower legs and feet.
Almost anyone can benefit from compression stockings, including people who stand or sit for prolonged periods of time, those with tired, aching legs, swollen feet and ankles, varicose veins as well as expectant mothers. However compression stoking is medically prescribed to improve symptoms related to diabetes, varicose veins, leg swelling, and even prevent blood clots!

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Units
TENS units are machines known as trans-cutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. They use electrical current which is transcutaneously applied to stimulate nerves and promote healing. TENS includes a complete range of machines used for nerve excitation; however the term is often used to describe the kind of pulses produced by portable stimulators used to treat pain. Thus the commonly known TENS is a small, battery-operated machine that delivers a low-level, painless current of electricity.
The TENS pads are placed on your skin over a painful area and connected to the skin using two or more electrodes. A typical battery-operated TENS unit is able to modulate pulse width, frequency and intensity. TENS is usually applied at high frequency more than 50 Hz and with a sensory intensity below motor contraction. It can be also applied at a low frequency 10 Hz with an intensity that produces motor contraction. This current from the machine sends signals to the nerves under the skin, which blocks some pain signals in the spine and helps the body to produce its own pain relief chemicals called endorphins.
At HealthOne Medical Centre, we offer TENS machines for the purpose of pain relief between treatments and faster healing. We offer both in wall units and battery operated units to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. Tens units is a great modality for acute or chronic pain, decreasing swelling and increasing muscle firing. It can also be used to help reduce muscle spasticity, swelling, or even to help build strength in weak or injured muscles!
