Compression Wear

People wear compression stockings for a number of reasons, with some wearing them to help themselves recover easier from surgery, others wearing them to be more comfortable if they have an occupation in which they stand or sit for long periods of time, and others wearing them to perform better in sports.

Compression stockings and socks are specially made stretchy socks that fit very snugly, and gently squeeze your leg. The pressure these stockings and socks put on your legs helps your blood vessels work better. As a result, the arteries that take oxygen-rich blood to your muscles relax and the veins have a much easier time pushing the blood back to your heart. Compression stockings and socks can help to prevent your legs from getting tired and sore, and they can also ease swelling in your feet and ankles as well as help prevent spider veins and varicose veins.

Are compression stockings and socks for me?

If you are wondering whether compression stockings could be for you, see if you notice any of the following:

Stiff, achy legs

If you find that your legs are getting stiff and sore very easily, this could mean that you are in need of something the help ease the pain. This kind of pain and discomfort is common in people who either spend a lot of time sitting or standing.

Swollen feet and ankles

if your feet and/or ankles are becoming swollen and painful, you should definitely consider investing in some compression stockings. You’ll find relief with the increase in blood flow that results from wearing pressure stockings and socks.

Bulging veins

if you have veins that are protruding and bulging, this means they are having a hard time pumping blood and that you are in need of some loosening up of your leg muscles.

Compression stockings are usually recommended for the following conditions:

  • Tired, aching legs
  • Edema
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Varicose veins
  • Spider veins (mild varicosities)
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Venous thromboembolism
  • Lymphedema
