|Compression stockings, also known as compression socks or compression hoses, are used as an initial varicose vein treatment. Varicose veins are blood vessels that have become large and twisted. Compression stockings support blood circulation in the legs by squeezing the leg, most tightly around the ankle and decreasing in pressure as they travel up the legs. These stockings look almost identical to pantyhose, knee-high, or thigh-high stockings and are often used as a non-surgical treatment for varicose veins, as well as for post-surgical support.
