The benefits of Compression Therapy are plentiful and the reasons vary from person to person why you may choose to wear compression socks or stockings. As shown in the above chart, some of the most prevalent symptoms or conditions that benefit from compression therapy are:

  • Pregnancy related swelling and vein problems
  • Varicose or spider veins
  • Lymphedema or edema
  • Swelling, pain or blood clots in the lower legs, also known as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)
  • Poor circulation from sitting for long periods
  • Post-surgical and post-sclerotherapy treatment

It can even be used as a preventive measure to maintain healthy legs for someone who spends extensive amounts of time on their feet. Quite simply, when we stand still for long periods, the forces of gravity increase the pressure within the veins of the legs where the greater effects happen at the ankle and decreases gradually up the leg and body. This pressure depends on the vertical distance of the column of blood from the heart to the foot. That's why gradient compression stockings are designed with the pressure greatest at the ankle and diminishing as it moves up the leg in order to counter the effects of the higher venous pressures.

Compression therapy products are put on in the morning upon arising, which is typically before any significant swelling would occur, and then removed at night. Throughout the day the compression prevents blood from pooling in leg veins, which in turn helps your overall circulation and lessens or eliminates any leg swelling you may have.

When shopping for compression socks or stockings, it is best to measure earlier in the day before swelling builds in the legs. Measurements taken later in the day after swelling occurs may cause you to choose an item that is too large and then not effective.

There are many types of compression socks and stockings available without a prescription and they do offer wide-ranging benefits. Before wearing a compression therapy of 20 mmHg (Firm Compression) and above, it is generally recommended to consult your health care provider to find out if graduated compression stockings are right for you. If the answer is yes, they can tell you what pressure grade you should buy for maximum benefit and relief.

    Great TEDS 4 people found this helpful


    The socks are well made...fit easier, not as tight as others I have. The thigh highs were extremely comfortable. My older pairs are shredding, so I plan to continue with you when I reorder replacements ....thank you

    These Stockings exceeded my expectations greatly 4 people found this helpful


    I recently had knee surgery on 8/11. This was my first surgery and my first time being introduced to compression socks. The hospital gave me very thin open toed white ones. I have pretty thick thighs so it's safe to say they kept rolling down and ripped on day 1, and the hospital only gave 2 pairs. They were very uncomfortable, to say the least. But THESE??? These are absolutely amazing. They are thick, but not too thick. Thick enough that when you put them on, it doesn't feel like you're gonna shred then. They are breathable. They have an amazing anti-roll strip. And they cover my thighs all the way!!! No spillage at all and they cover the spot where my knee brace has previously chafed my healthy leg, so no more chafing!!! I was skeptical about ordering because I had never heard of this site, but I'm so glad I followed the reviews I saw because these are so comfortable. I wish I had ordered them before surgery do I didn't have to suffer a week without them!! Thank you so much!!
