In terms of any dangerous side-effects that can arise as a result of a medical procedure, compression therapy risks are minimal. When patients do have a complaint about their compression treatment regimen, it is typically that the stockings are uncomfortable to wear. While different stockings and technologies exist to minimize discomfort, some patients find that the stockings feel overly itchy, hot, and may cause some discomfort.
Other compression therapy risks, such as skin allergies, can be prevented by a team like ours that takes time to get to know the entire scope of a patient’s needs as well as their medical history. Depending on what compression therapy complications a patient may experience early in their treatment, an experienced physician can recommend a different type of stocking that may allow patients to move forward with their treatment effectively and free of negative side effects.
