Compression Therapy

Custom and off-the-shelf compression therapy solutions that are sized just for you to ensure they are easy and comfortable to wear.

Let’s put some spring back in your step

If you’re suffering from tired, achy feet, uncomfortable swelling or varicose veins, PBO Group’s custom and off-the-shelf compression therapy solutions can provide welcome relief.

It all starts with a made-to-measure fit. Our certified fitters will assess and measure your body to ensure the garment that is made or chosen provides the right degree of pressure but is also easy to put on and comfortable to wear.

Compression Therapy services are offered at PBO Niagara, PBO Kawartha, PBO Barrie and PBO Owen Sound.

Money Matters: In some cases, The Ministry of Health’s Assistive Devices Program will cover a portion (75%) of the cost of compression garments. Most major insurance plans will also cover a portion of the cost. As part of our commitment to best-in-class client care, our staff is happy to assist with submitting insurance documents to the appropriate parties.

Venous stockings are used primarily for the legs to help treat mild to severe swelling, varicose veins and muscle fatigue. They are often recommended for use during air travel, pregnancy and exercise. Their circular knit serves to squeeze veins together to force blood back into circulation.

PBO Group offers both custom and off-the-shelf venous stocking options and our certified fitter will help you assess your options. Most insurance plans offer coverage for venous stockings, but often require a doctor’s prescription for higher, medical-grade levels of stockings. PBO Group staff will be happy to assist with any paperwork required by your insurance company.
