Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are used by both men and women to help treat circulatory conditions such as edema, swelling, varicose veins and thrombosis.

When shopping for compression stockings, consider how much compression you need. The amount of compression offered by the stocking is measured in mmHg. Different amounts of compression are ideal for different conditions, so ask your doctor about the best compression level for you.

Another factor to consider is the style of the of the stocking. Men often prefer knee-high compression stockings, while women also wear thigh-high stockings and compression pantyhose. The best style for you is partly a matter of personal preference, although you may also want to consider your condition and what parts of your legs are affected. Maternity compression stockings are available, since edema and swelling are common in pregnancy.

At Walmart, you'll find a wide selection of compression stockings and other braces and supports, all at Every Day Low Prices. Save money. Live better.
