Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are socks that come in various lengths and are designed to have gradient compression throughout the sock. What this means is that they have greatest compression starting at the ankle that gradually reduces in compression as it moves up the leg. This allows for better blood circulation in the legs, providing relief of tired, achy legs and decreasing the amount of possible ongoing swelling.

Compression stockings range in compression levels, starting at 8mmHg all the way up to 40mmHg. Depending on the diagnosis, you may be prescribed a higher or lower level of compression. Any compression level greater than 20mmHg will need a prescription from a medical doctor.

Compression stockings can help prevent and decrease progression of many venous disorders such as:

  • Swelling (edema)
  • Varicose veins
  • Spider veins
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Tired and achy legs
