Please recommend best practice to manually remove stockings to make sure they don't stretch out or damage. Asked by Miriam

To remove your compression stockings, simply fold them down until they get stuck (typically above the ankle). Using your thumb, slowly horn it down until it pops off your heel. Now you can allow the rest of it to slide off your foot.

What Is Compression And What Are The Varying Levels?

Compression stockings are specially designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow and reduce discomfort and swelling. They may be prescribed by your doctor if you have a condition that causes poor blood flow in your legs, such as varicose veins (swollen and enlarged veins). Light (8–15 mmHg) provides relief and minimizes tired, achy legs and swelling. Medium/Moderate (15–20 mmHg): ideal compression level used for those traveling long distances. Firm (20–30 mmHg) helps prevent and relieve moderate to severe varicose veins, post-surgical treatment, severe edema, and DVT. X-Firm (30–40 mmHg) helps prevent and relieve severe varicose veins, post-surgical treatment, severe edema, and DVT.
