The compression stockings function by applying outer pressure in order to deal effectively with vein insufficiency.
Both vein insufficiency and lymphoedema usually cause oedema, which due to the gravity of the body gets worse during the day.
The use of compression stockings is recommended of the compensation of the vein hyper tension, due to their exertion of the outer pressure the veins empty the blood.
They also contribute to the swiftest recovery after the surgical treatment, because they restrict significantly the bruising that is caused after the procedure and they lead to their absorption.
It is noted that the compression stockings are effective only during the period of time that the patient wears them.
