Pressure stockings

Pressure stockings will improve blood flow in the veins of your legs and lower your risk for blood clots and their complications. The stockings use graduated pressure to keep blood from pooling. They are tightest at the ankle and gradually decrease in pressure up the leg. Stockings may extend to your knee or up to your thigh.
