Compression Stockings

You wear compression stockings to improve blood flow in your legs. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs.This helps prevent swelling, and to a lesser extent, blood clots.

If you have varicose veins, spider veins, or have just had surgery, your doctor may prescribe compression stockings.

Wearing Stockings Help With

  • Aching and heavy feeling in legs
  • Swelling in legs
  • Preventing blood clots, especially after surgery

Types Of Compression Stockings

Your doctor will help you determine what stocking is right for you. They come in different:

  • Pressures, ranging from light pressure to strong pressure
  • Lengths, from below knee to the top of the thigh
