Our Pharmacist or Pharmacy Technician will measure your legs to ensure the correct style and size is chosen. If your legs are often swollen they should be measured in the morning when the swelling is minimal.
Compressions stockings are designed to improve your circulation by steadily squeezing your legs, often tightest at the ankle and gradually easing off as they go further up your leg. This encourages the blood to flow up towards the heart.
Compression stockings are available in a variety of sizes, colours and pressures. And don’t forget to moisturise your legs before going to bed to ensure you skin stays soft, moist and supple. Compression stockings should be hand-washed in warm water and dried away from direct heat.
