To treat varicose veins, lymphedema and chronic venous insufficiency, Blank Vascular Center physicians may prescribe the use of compression therapy. This usually involves wearing special stockings or garments to apply graduated compression on the painful or swollen region. Compression therapy supports better circulation. For venous insufficiency and lymphedema, compression pumps also may be prescribed.
