Compression Socks and Stockings

If you’re dealing with leg, foot, or ankle swelling and pain, compression socks or stockings could be the solution you’ve been searching for.

This common issue, caused by the accumulation of blood and fluids, may lead to more severe problems like varicose veins if left untreated.


Compression therapy offers a lasting remedy by addressing circulation issues, reducing pain and swelling in your legs, ankles, and feet. This means you can stand and walk comfortably without the worry of pain.






Blood Clots

Compression Socks

How do Compression Socks and Stockings work?

Our perfectly fitting compression socks and stockings exert pressure on the feet and legs. They are designed with graduated pressure, strongest at the ankle and gradually decreasing towards the top.

This pressure prevents blood from pooling in the legs, directing it back towards the heart and improving circulation. Consequently, there’s a reduction in swelling and pressure within your blood vessels.

While elevating your legs might offer short-term relief, prolonged standing or walking can exacerbate the condition. Choose compression socks for long-lasting comfort.

Types of Compression Socks and Stockings:

Anti-embolism Stockings
are a special variety that’s typically used by patients who are not mobile. They’re designed to reduce the chance of developing a type of blood clot called Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).

Socks and stockings are available in different lengths for treating a variety of issues. For instance, stockings that end below the knee focus on treating lower leg swelling. 

Extended Stockings
Alternatively, stockings that extend higher can treat issues like orthostatic hypotension or postural hypotension (a condition where standing up quickly causes sudden drops in blood pressure) and in some cases, Multiple System Atrophy (MSA).
Compression Sleeve
A related medical device is the compression sleeve. As opposed to treating circulation issues, compression sleeves are typically used to take the stress off a particular joint like the knee or elbow.

Selecting the correct compression socks is crucial; otherwise, you may not address your issues and could potentially experience side effects such as skin irritation or damage to leg veins and nerves. Opting for professional guidance, such as from Activa clinic, is a wise decision.
