Compression Hose & Stockings
People wear compression stockings for comfort, to do better in sports, and to help prevent serious medical conditions.Basically, they improve your blood flow. They can lessen pain and swelling in your legs. They can also lower your chances of getting deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a kind of blood clot, and other circulation problems.They come in different sizes and strengths, so you or your doctor will need to decide which option will work best.
Who Uses Them?
- People with or at risk for circulation problems, like DVT, varicose veins, or diabetes
- People who've just gotten surgery
- Those who can't leave their bed or have a hard time moving their legs
- People who stand all day at work
- Pregnant Women
- People who spend long stretches of time on airplanes, like pilots
Compression stockings are specially made, snug-fitting, stretchy socks that gently squeeze your leg. Graduated compression or pressure stockings are tighter around your ankle and get looser as they move up your leg. Compression sleeves are just the tube part, without the foot.
You can buy them over the counter, but if your doctor prescribes them, your insurance may cover the cost.
