Support stocking fitting centre
A new service for those with venous and lymphatic conditions
At Buderim Pharmacy we’ve established a new service for those in need of compression stockings, also known as support stockings, for the management of venous and lymphatic conditions. These stockings are used for prevention and treatment of conditions where blood return from the lower legs back to the heart is inadequate or where swelling occurs. Whether it’s for air travel, varicose veins, pregnancy or post surgery, there’s a support stocking solution right for you. Of course for serious conditions, you should consult your GP who will advise you on the best options.
Because there are many styles and three classes with graduated compression strengths and each customer’s needs are unique, it’s important to ensure careful measurement for the most suitable style and a proper fit. With our range of Class 1 and Class 2 stockings and expert advice, we’ll help you by measuring for the correct stocking, show you how to put them on and take them off and provide advice on how best to keep them clean and hygienic.
