When it comes to compression stocking and your unique vein situation it is important to find the right degree of compression for you. The way the stocking works is that it is the tightest or has the most pressure around the feet and then progressively has less pressure as it moves up the legs. The degree of compression or the varying tightness on the stocking depends on each person’s needs and can be recommended to you by a vein professional.
As stated earlier the point of compression stockings is not to solve your varicose vein problems but it is meant to help with the symptoms you are experiencing or even slow or stop the progression of your varicose veins. Stockings do this by putting pressure on the legs which causes the blood to circulate throughout the body and not pool in the feet. Compression stockings are not for everyone but they could be a great start to getting rid of your varicose vein symptoms and helping you to live the life you want.
