Compression stockings are worn for comfort and by athletes for improved performance in sports. They are also designed to prevent serious medical conditions by improving blood flow. They reduce swelling in the leg, lessen pain and can also lower the chances of getting deep vein thrombosis and other circulation problems.
Compression stockings are carefully knitted to provide a snug fit and are stretchy to provide compression on the legs. They are tighter on the ankles and loose when moving up the leg.
Compression stockings are ideal for use by people who are at risk of circulation problems, those who already suffer from them, those who have just gotten surgery, those who stand for long periods of the day as well as athletes and pregnant women.
Compression from the stockings allows the blood vessels to work better for proper blood circulation. They also keep the legs from getting tired and achy and can ease swelling on the feet and ankles.
