Compression Socks

Compression Socks

The main purpose of compression socks and stockings is to provide gentle pressure to your ankles and legs. The stockings should provide graduated compression to promote blood flow up from your legs to your heart. A secondary purpose of compression socks is to help alleviate pain and swelling in the ankles and legs.

Benefits of Compression Socks

The main reason doctors prescribe compression socks is to boost leg circulation, support veins, reduce leg swelling, help prevent blood from pooling in your legs, help prevent venous ulcers, help prevent deep vein thrombosis, help reverse venous hypertension, and help lessen the pain of varicose veins. Compression socks work by helping blood flow to the heart, help to prevent blood from refluxing downward to the foot, and to help reduce the diameter of major veins by increasing the velocity of blood flow.

There are three main categories of compression socks or stockings including graduated compression stockings, anti-embolism stocks and non medical hosiery. Three popular brands of compressions socks are Sigvaris, Jobst, Airway Surgical, and Venosan. If your doctor have prescribed compression stockings you should monitor your legs daily.

Men's and Women's Circulation Socks

Compression socks are intended to ease the symptoms of lymphedema, edoema, and DVT. Poor circulation and leg fatigue are also commonly treated with compression stockings.

If you wear compression socks regularly, it could lead to improving blood flow. As a result, the rate at which your core temperature drops accelerates. Your extremities, such as your feet, hands, and ears, are where you lose the most heat.

Compression Levels

Millimeters of mercury (mmHg) is a unit of measurement for pressure or compression. The pressure on compression socks is listed as a range because they provide graduated compression. The amount of pressure at the foot is higher in the range, while the amount at the top of the sock is lower.

  • 8-10 mmHg
  • 15-20 mmHg
  • 20-30 mmHg
  • 25-35 mmHg for diabetics
  • 30-40 mmHg
  • 40-50 mmHg
