What is Compression? 

While there are different forms of compression, compression stockings are the most common for elderly individuals. These socks are designed to have a snug fit around your leg, gently squeezing the area for health purposes. 

How Do Compression Stockings Work? 

Due to the constant pressure on the individual's legs and feet who are wearing the stockings, blood flow is improved, swelling is reduced and pain is lessened. Your arteries are what carry oxygen-rich blood to the muscles in your legs and feet. Compression socks help your arteries relax which allows for your blood to flow more freely, keeping your legs from getting as tired and achy.

Compression therapy can benefit a wide range of individuals with various issues. Some of the benefits include: 

  • Boosting circulation
