How Do 40-50 mmHg Compression Stockings Work?

Graduated compression wear works by applying pressure on your legs, ankles, and feet, with the level of compression gradually decreasing up the garment. This type of pressure on the veins improves blood flow back up the legs and to the heart, limiting swelling and reducing the likelihood of a clot. While compression wear can be beneficial for many people, graduated compression stockings with 40-50 mmHg are intended to treat specific medical conditions, which is why it is crucial to consult your doctor before purchasing. With 40-50 mmHg compression socks and all compression garments, proper sizing and fit are necessary, and choosing the right pair is important for your overall wellness.
