Pressure gradient stockings represent an important therapy in the treatment of venous and lymphatic disease. Compression stockings are used not only to help prevent serious medical conditions but to simply improve comfort, and feel better while doing sports. By gently squeezing your leg, compression stockings help improve blood flow. Gradient stockings are tighter around your ankle and become looser as they go higher up your leg.
Compression Stocking help:
- Prevent circulation problems
