How do compression stockings work?
Compression stockings are made of strong elastic material and fit tightly at the feet and gradually become less tight at the knee/thigh. The pressure in the stockings is graded and this allows for the stockings to constantly squeeze the leg muscles. This motion helps to drive blood back to the heart, reduce swelling in the feet and prevent blood clot formation.

Some career professionals have an increased risk of developing vascular disease due to long periods of standing, sitting at a desk, walking or standing on hard concrete floors. If any of these apply to you, see a medical professional about obtaining a prescription for medical compression stockings to prevent varicose veins.
Leg swelling generally occurs because of an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the tissues of the lower extremity. The medical term for leg swelling from excessive fluid in the tissues is edema.
Symptoms of edema:
Enlarged ankles and calf (lower leg may appear puffy)
Discomfort or tired legs
Decreased mobility (leg may feel heavy)
Decreased skin elasticity
Deep Vein Thrombosis:
A deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in a deep vein, partially or completely blocking the flow of blood. A long-term side effect of DVT may be one or more damaged venous valves that allow backward flow of venous blood. Improperly functioning valves lead to venous congestion in the leg, increasing the risk for chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) and new DVT.
