Compression stockings are used to support the muscles of the calf 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 a graduated compression with maximum compression at the ankle and decreasing 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 would be best for you.
