A pressure stocking improves blood flow in the legs and reduces the risk for complications from blood clots. Unfortunately, this is usually indicated for everyday use or as prescribed by your attending physician. There are different styles and kinds depending on the severity or condition present that you can consider also. Compression sportswear such as tights may also be considered. Talk to your doctor about this for proper management. Your medical history and the symptoms present are important considerations also. Take care and best regards.
Thank you so much for your reply. I am suppose to wear them every day and it's so umcomfortable. They are the ones mentioned from my doctor. Just wondering if there are any other options out there other than compression stockings?
