  • Are You At Risk for DVT? Know More About Deep Vein Thrombosis

A blood clot also known a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) can break loose and travel to the lungs resulting in a Pulmonary Embolism (PE), an often-fatal condition. That’s why Innerpeace healthsupport solutions working very hard in medical compression stockings and socks, to educate people about DVT prevention.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body, usually in your legs. Deep vein thrombosis can cause leg pain or swelling, but may occur without any symptoms.

Deep vein thrombosis can develop if you have certain medical conditions that affect how your blood clots. Deep vein thrombosis can also happen if you don’t move for a long time, such as after surgery, following an accident, or when you are confined to a hospital or nursing home bed.

Symptoms of deep vein thrombosis include:

  • pain,

  • swelling,

  • warmth,

  • tenderness, and

  • redness of the leg or arm.

    DVT risk factors:

    • Prolonged sitting or restricted mobility such as long-distance travel

    • Age over 40

    • Surgery [especially orthopedic] or major injury

    • Excessive weight

    • Sedentary lifestyle

    • Smoking

    • Varicose veins

    • High estrogen states, such as in pregnancy or when using birth control pills

    • Cancer

    • Prolonged bed rest or immobility


    DVT is a major risk associated with surgery. This is especially true if you’re having a surgery in the lower extremities, such as joint replacement surgery. Your doctor will discuss the risk of DVT if you need joint replacement surgery.


    Being pregnant increases your risk of DVT. Increased hormone levels, and a slower blood flow as your uterus expands and restricts blood flowing back from your lower extremities, contribute to this risk. This elevated risk continues until about six weeks after giving birth. Being on bed rest or having a C-section also increases your risk of having DVT.

    You can prevent DVTs by:

    • Exercising regularly, including stretching and leg movement when travelling

    • Smoking cessation

    • Maintaining a normal body weight

    • Eating a healthy diet

    • Wearing compression stockings or socks, which reduces the risk of DVT

    What are the treatment options for deep vein thrombosis?

    DVT treatments focus on keeping the clot from growing. In addition, treatment will attempt to prevent a pulmonary embolism and lower your risk of having more clots.


    If blood thinners don’t work or if you have a severe case of DVT, your doctor might use thrombolytic drugs. Thrombolytic drugs work by breaking up clots. You’ll receive these intravenously.

    Compression stockings

    Wearing compression stockings can prevent swelling and lower your chance of developing clots. They reach just below your knee or right above it. You’ll most likely wear these every day.
