COMPRESSION
STOCKINGS

Stockings Are Effective At Reducing Many Symptoms Of Vein Diseases
  • Compression stockings or support socks are stretchy, elastic type socks available in lengths from knee-high to full waist pantyhose. These stockings are effective at reducing many of the symptoms of vein diseases in addition to preventing further development of varicose and spider veins. Medical grade versions are often constructed to provide “gradient” compression meaning they apply more pressure to the ankles and foot then the top portion in order to help the legs and veins pump blood in the correct direction. Sizing and measuring does matter when it comes to compression stockings. By design it is very important that compression stockings fit properly. Without a good fit they cannot do their job of assisting in return blood flow and reducing edema (swelling) in the legs. * A 3 month trial of medical-grade compression stockings with a minimum strength rating (20-30mmHg) is required by most insurance companies before considering invasive treatment options.
