Wearing support stockings: effective prevention of venous symptoms
Just like medical compression stockings, support stockings can help to counteract venous symptoms in combating venous problems such as edema. The key difference, however, is the amount of compression applied to the limbs in order to encourage healthy blood flow through the veins. This is indicated by defined compression levels. Support stockings have a compression level of below 15mmHg and can help counteract symptoms like minor swelling or tired legs, whereas medical compression garments have higher compression levels and are for treating existing venous conditions.
Wearing support stockings is particularly beneficial for flying, long journeys, or prolonged sitting or standing, since the gradual compression to your legs will help prevent swelling. Alternatively, they are also well suited to soothing tired and heavy legs after standing for lengthy periods. So, no matter whether you are embarking on a long-haul flight or preparing for a busy day on your feet, JOBST support stockings will keep you comfortable throughout the day.
