QUESTION AND ANSWER

Can I wear normal stockings and get the same benefits of compression stockings?

Prescription compression hose are made to a higher standard than regular "tight stockings." It is important to wear these graded compression hose because of the progressive nature of the design and the scientifically proven benefits that result. Your regular stockings may be acceptable for an evening out or a particular social event; however, for the actual management of venous reflux disease, they will not have the same effect. The hose from the hospital are likely "anti-embolism" stockings.
