If you have been prescribed compression stockings for a condition that affects your circulation, you may need to wear them for several years or, in some cases, the rest of your life.
What are compression stockings for?
Compression stockings are specially designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow and reduce discomfort and swelling.
They may be prescribed by your GP if you have a condition that causes poor blood flow in your legs, such as:
- Varicose Veins (swollen and enlarged veins)
- Lymphoedema (when your body’s tissues swell up)
- Venous insufficiency
Compression stockings come in a variety of sizes, lengths and colors. They’re also available with different strengths of compression.
Your legs will be measured to see what size stockings you need.
You should wear your compression stockings during the day and take them off before going to bed. Put them on again first thing in the morning.
