Compression stockings provide external support to the vein walls and work in conjunction with the calf muscle pump. They help minimize and control swelling and leg pain. There are 4 main compression levels which are measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The higher the numbers, the higher the compression. Unless otherwise instructed by a medical professional, stockings should be worn during the day, while you are active.
Bay Life Pharmacy provides excellent quality compression stockings and experienced compression stocking fitters to help find the right size just for you.
