Compression stockings are often used as a first course of treatment for a variety of venous issues, because they effectively relieve symptoms by moving blood more efficiently through the veins of the legs. These stockings, also referred to as compression hose or socks, may also be used in combination with other vein procedures to aid in the recovery process and prevent blood clots after treatment. Compression stockings apply more pressure around the ankle and then loosen as they move up the leg to allow blood to flow upward more freely.
