Compression hose were created to relieve tired, achy legs as well as treat venous and lymphatic problems.  Compression hose help prevent swelling in the feet and legs if they are put on early before the swelling starts during the day.  Compression hose are labeled by the strength of compression in millimeters of mercury (mmHG), and the style of garment.  It is best to consult your physician about which compression class is best for you.
