Compression Stockings

Compression stockings help in increasing the flow of blood in your legs by providing a gentle compression that helps the blood to move up your legs. This gentle compression helps in reduction of swelling and blood clotting. You may be prescribed for compression stockings if you have varicose veins, spider veins, and lymphedema or for use after a surgery. Compression stockings also help with aching legs with a heavy feeling. Your healthcare provider may suggest the type of stockings and the level of compression required according to your health condition.

Compression stockings come in different:

  • Levels of Pressure ranging from light compression to strong compression
  • Lengths: they come in knee length stocking style to the top of the thigh
  • Different Colors


The amount of time for which you need to wear compression stockings each day differs according to your specific health condition. In some cases you might need to wear them all day long. Stockings feel tight around the ankles and you feel lesser pressure higher up. Put on the stockings first thing in the morning as the swelling is least when you wake up. Holding the top roll the stocking down to the heel. Put your foot in the stocking and roll up to your knees or thighs. Smoothens the wrinkles if any. For people with limited hand strength compression stockings can be difficult to put on. Apply a moisturiser on your legs if you find it difficult to wear them. Alternatively you can use a little baby powder or cornstarch for easing the process. For people with limited dexterity a sock donning aid may help. Wash the stockings with water and a mild detergent each day. Keep two pair of stockings. One to wear and other to wash. These stockings must be replaced every 3-6 months as they may lose their compression failing to maintain the required amount of support. If you feel your size has changes due to the subsiding of swelling or any other reason get it refitted by your healthcare provider.
