Benefits of compression socks
The main benefit of compression stockings is for people with certain leg problems or at risk for blood clots in the legs, known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
Many factors can increase the risk of these clots, including prolonged bed rest, sitting for long periods ( such as on the plane), use of birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy, pregnancy, family history of DVT, inflammatory bowel disease, and certain genetic clotting disorders.
Compression stockings are also sometimes used in people have an acute DVT, to prevent a group of symptoms knows as post thrombotic syndrome that includes leg pain and swelling
