You have swelling, you will benefit from wearing compression stockings

Build-up of fluid in the body’s tissues, often occurring in the lower leg and ankle, is called swelling or edema. Painless swelling may be caused by some medications, injury, vein problems, heart problems or other reasons. Prolonged swelling should not be ignored, as it may be a sign of serious disease or chronic venous insufficiency.  

Symptoms of edema:

  • Enlarged ankles and calf (lower leg may appear puffy)
  • Discomfort or tired legs
  • Decreased mobility (leg may feel heavy)
  • Decreased skin elasticity

Mild swelling is often managed with 15-20 mmHg compression. Moderate and severe swelling may require higher compression. Please consult with your physician.

Remember to talk with your doctor or health care provider before wearing compression 20 mmHg and greater.
