Are wearing compression stockings beneficial for my scenario?

Compression Stockings . 6 answers . 2 years ago

I hurt my knee and I've been working on it while it's been sore. I thought I had a blood clot because the calf area was swollen so much, but an ultra sound ruled that out. Now I'm wearing stockings and the swelling is down, but am I doing more damage wearing them? Deb

You might want to talk with your orthopedic surgeon for a definitive answer. However, if you have soft tissue injury a support hose can help control swelling and support the joint, providing that the hose are measured and fitted to you correctly.

No, you are not doing any harm by wearing compression hose. This is the
first line of therapy for any leg swelling once DVT has been ruled out!
Good Job!
