Conservative treatments include compression stockings and herbal treatments.
Graduated compression stockings are a mainstay of initial/conservative management of venous disease. Graduated compression stockings are tighter around the foot and ankle and the compression decreases as it goes up the leg. This “graduated compression” promotes the normal flow of blood up the leg.
Possible complications of graduated compression stockings are obstruction of venous or arterial blood flow due to improper sizing or undiagnosed peripheral vascular disease.
In the area of herbal remedies, horse chestnut extract is the most commonly recommended herbal preparation for venous disease.
