Socks for Lymphoedema

Lymphoedema is swelling in the legs caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system, or an inherited condition, such as Milroy’s disease, that causes an abnormality of the lymph vessels.

The lymphatic system consists of a series of lymph nodes (glands) connected by a network of vessels, similar to blood vessels.

Fluid surrounding body tissues usually drains into nearby lymph vessels so it can be transported back into the blood. However, if the lymph vessels are blocked,
the fluid can’t be reabsorbed and will build up in the tissue.

Unlike oedema, lymphoedema is a longterm condition that can cause discomfort, pain and a loss of mobility.

It can’t be cured, but it can be controlled using a number of treatments, including our range of socks for Lymphoedema:
