Juzo Therapeutic Compression Stockings for Fatigued Legs

It has been two years now, and my doctor still has no idea what is causing my leg pain. It’s more of an ache than a pain, and I just can’t seem to get comfortable. I’ve had three MRI’s, a slew of blood tests, an ultrasound, and nerve testing is next on the agenda.

The doctor that checked my leg veins to be sure my valves were working properly suggested I wear a pair of compression stockings. They measured my legs in several different places, and found a pair that was right for me. I was skeptical at first, but the first day I wore them my legs did not ache!

Juzo Basic Compression Stockings set me back $55.00, and they came in both nude and black. Since I wear black pants a lot I chose that color. They are designed like a pair of pantyhose, but mine do not have a toe on them, instead they are open.

The box states these have a two-way stretch and graduated compression. They are easy to care for and can be washed in the washing machine as long as I do not use fabric softener as this can damage the fabric.

My doctor explained that blood is pumped back up the leg to the heart via the calf muscle in the lower leg. These stockings are tighter at the bottom of the foot, but become less and less tight toward the panty portion. The literature that came with the stockings explains the many indications for wearing Juzo Basic Compression stockings, a few among them being pregnancy varices and or edema, venous insufficiency, post superficial thrombophlebitis, pre and post vein procedures, heavy and fatigued legs, dermatoslcerosis, severe tendency to edema, and treatment of burn scars.

This is far from the entire list, as compression stockings are for a wide variety of indications. There are warnings as well, so I would not wear compression stockings unless they were suggested by a physician.

Juzo Basic Compression Stockings take some time to get used to. Since the fit is so tight, they take a while to get on, as well as take off. When I took them out of the box I thought they looked like a pair of Bermuda shorts or Capri’s! They were so tiny I didn’t think they would fit. After slipping my foot into the foot area I slowly pulled the stockings upward, being careful not to put a hole in them with my fingers (I soon learned it was best to remove my rings when putting them on).

Not only do these stockings help with my leg discomfort, but they also work like long underwear and keep me much warmer during the winter months. I cannot imagine wearing these in a hot climate. I have small feet and the most bothersome part of wearing these was when the band across the top of my foot started to dig into my skin. If I had it to do over again I would purchase the footed style. Overall I am happy with the results I have experienced while wearing Juzo Basic Compression Stockings.
