A Conservative Approach to
Combating Varicose Veins
Wearing compression stockings is a conservative treatment strategy for people who suffer from varicose vein swelling and pain.
Conservative therapy may also be the first approach we take for patients whose insurance companies require it prior to authorizing other, more permanent treatments.
Many insurance companies require patients to wear prescription-strength compression stockings for three to six months before the company will consider reimbursing other treatments.
Compression stockings do not treat the underlying condition. Supportive stockings are intended to lessen symptoms, rather than cure the disease.
