Compression stockings are used to support the calf muscles in circulating blood and lymph fluid through the legs. These stockings, or hose, are usually made of elastic or rubber fibers that aid in compressing the leg. Compression stockings have graduated compression, with the maximum amount of compression at the ankle that decreases as it travels up the leg.
There are different types of compression available in these stockings, so be sure to check with your doctor about which level of compression is best for you.
