Unlike everyday stockings, medical compression stockings provide varying degrees of compression on certain areas of the legs. Blood circulation is improved by tightly squeezing the ankle and gradually relieving pressure above the leg, which prevents blood from accumulating at the bottom. For patients with varicose veins, compression stockings act as a means of conservative treatment and enhance the therapeutic effectiveness after the main treatment.
Compression stockings are not the main method of treatment, therefore, if you suspect varicose veins, seek diagnosis and professional medical help from a specialist.
