At Synergy Prosthetics, we understand the importance of preventative care when it comes to Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and the potential risks it poses to our patients.
DVT is a serious medical condition that occurs when a blood clot forms in one of the deep veins in your body, typically in your legs. If left untreated, the clot can break off and travel to your lungs, leading to a pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.
Fortunately, there are a number of measures you can take to prevent DVT, including DVT therapy. DVT therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can help prevent blood clots from forming, and it is an important part of our mission to provide state-of-the-art prosthetics and orthotics in a convenient, mobile environment to the Bay Area community.
What is DVT Therapy?
DVT therapy is a preventative treatment that uses a variety of techniques to prevent blood clots from forming. The primary goal of DVT therapy is to improve circulation, which can help prevent blood clots. Techniques used in DVT therapy include:
Compression therapy – compression stockings or sleeves can be worn to improve blood flow and prevent blood from pooling in the legs.
Physical activity – simple exercises like walking or leg movements can help keep the blood flowing and prevent blood clots.
Medication – anticoagulant medication can be used to prevent blood clots from forming.
Who is at Risk for DVT?
DVT can affect anyone, but there are certain factors that can increase your risk, including:
Prolonged immobility – long periods of sitting or bed rest can increase your risk of DVT.
Surgery – surgery can increase your risk of DVT.
Age – as you get older, your risk of DVT increases.
Obesity – being overweight can increase your risk of DVT.
Pregnancy – pregnant women are at an increased risk of DVT due to changes in hormone levels and increased pressure on the veins.
