Two Primary Benefits of Compression Socks

The most beneficial effect is action on the capillaries and tissues. Compression applied in this manner will increase pressure on tissues beneath the skin, which helps to reduce leakage of fluid from the capillaries. This helps to increase the return of fluid to the capillaries and lymph vessels, in turn reducing and preventing swelling.

A secondary benefit is the presence of the stocking on the leg which helps control the size (diameter) of the superficial veins that lie just beneath the skin. The compressive action of the garment prevents the slowing of blood flow and blood “pooling”. The blood in the veins can then flow more quickly up the leg back toward the heart.
