Compression Hose Therapy
Often called compression stockings, these stockings are prescribed to help support the weakened veins in your legs. They alleviate swelling and aching and are usually the first step in any vein treatment program. Stockings come in different "strengths" or "squeeze", depending on the severity of your varicose vein symptoms. They can be worn as knee high, thigh high or even pantyhose style as desired.
