Compression stockings are used to treat circulation issues that lead to swelling of the legs and ankles. They help by reducing swelling and come based on your size specifications. Measurements of your foot, ankle, leg and sometimes hip will be taken. These measurements will be used to choose appropriate compression stockings for you. Compression stockings can be purchased off the shelf, however when measurements are taken, they tend to fit you better. They come in many different materials, sizes, length and styles.
