Compression Stock & Stockings
Compression stockings and socks help improve blood flow in the leg veins and prevent blood from pooling in the legs. They are woven in a special way so that they are tighter near the feet and gradually become looser as they go up the leg. This steady squeezing of the legs helps blood flow out of the leg veins and back towards the heart.
By improving circulation in the veins of the legs, compression stockings can prevent blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) and relieve the symptoms of chronic vein disease and varicose veins, such as swelling, aching, and pain.
