What are Compression Stockings?

Compression Stockings, also known as Compression Socks, provide graduated compression to the legs, helping to improve blood flow and prevent certain medical conditions. The compression offered helps alleviate the discomfort and swelling associated with varicose veins, which are enlarged and twisted veins that usually occur in the legs. It can also be used as part of the management of lymphedema, a condition where excess lymph fluid accumulates in tissues, typically in the arms or legs, causing swelling. Compression socks are available in various lengths, including knee-high, thigh-high, and pantyhose styles.

How do Compression Socks Work?

Compression stockings work by applying graduated pressure to the legs, with the highest pressure at the ankle and gradually decreasing towards the top of the stocking. This compression helps to improve blood flow and reduce swelling by exerting pressure on the veins in the legs, which helps to compress the walls of the veins and improve the efficiency of blood flow back to the heart.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How to measure for compression stockings?

    To measure for compression hose, you will need a flexible measuring tape. Measure the circumference of your ankle at its narrowest point, the circumference of your calf at its widest point, and the circumference of your thigh if you are getting thigh-high stockings. Measure the length from the floor to the point on your leg where you want the stocking to end. It's best to measure in the morning when your legs are least swollen. Use the measurements to determine the appropriate size and compression level of the stocking according to the manufacturer's sizing chart or with the guidance of a healthcare professional. Proper measurement is crucial to ensure a proper fit and optimal effectiveness of compression stockings.

  2. When to remove compression stockings after surgery?

    When these stockings are recommended after surgery, they should usually be worn as much as possible, day and night, until you're able to move around freely.
  3. How many hours a day should you wear compression stockings?

    You should wear your stockings during the day and take them off before going to bed. Put them on again first thing in the morning. You should be given at least 2 stockings or 2 pairs if you're wearing them on both legs. This means you can wear 1 stocking (or pair) while the other is being washed and dried.
