Compression Stockings

What are compression socks/stockings?

Compression stockings improves venous lymph, and blood flow in your legs. The stockings/socks are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the distal (ankle) end of the garment and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking. This gradient pressure promotes better blood flow which in turn helps to control swelling, varicosities, leg fatigue and other problematic leg conditions.
