Health Buzz: Graduated Compression Hosiery

There is a simple and inexpensive way to make legs look great and feel great – wear compression hosiery. Graduated compression hosiery works by applying pressure at the ankle that systematically decreases up the hosiery length, and keeps proper venous blood flow in the legs. This prevents back-flow and stagnation of blood in the lower legs that can cause clotting and swelling. The support they supply can also help prevent unsightly spider and varicose veins.
