Though medications and injections are the most commonly opted emergency deep vein thrombosis- DVT treatment, cardiologists may recommend you various other ways to prevent the signs of a blood clot. You may wear stockings to stave off calf pain as well as swelling and reduce the risk of developing ulcers after a blood clot in leg. The stockings can also help in the prevention of post-thrombotic syndrome which signifies damage in the tissue of the leg brought about by increased venous pressure. This happens when the concerned vein is blocked by clotting of blood and the blood is diverted to the outer veins. So, after you have experienced deep vein thrombosis symptoms, your cardiologist would recommend you to wear the stockings for at least 2 years. This is owing to the fact that the symptoms of blood clot in the leg may reappear after a few months of having a DVT. The compression stockings must be fitted under professional supervision and the condition should be reviewed quarterly. The deep vein thrombosis treatment can help in preventing the clot from spreading and growing. It is also helful in stopping the clot from traversibg to lings or some other part of the body. The treatment helps in staving off future development of the clot. Your cardiologist may also advise you to keep your legs in raised position whenever you are resting to relieve the pressure on the calf veins.
