Is there compression in the feet of my stockings?
Many people assume there is compression in the foot of compression stockings. Generally, this is not true. The foot portion of compression stockings may feel snug, especially if you have large feet, but it does not have medical compression. Compression begins at the ankle in almost all ready-to-wear compression stockings, with one exception.
The Juzo Dynamic (Varin) Neuropathic provides 30-40mmHg with increased compression beginning at the metatarsals. The metatarsals are the five long bones that connect your toes to the middle bones of your foot. Varin Neuropathic stockings are available in knee high and thigh high styles, in regular and short lengths, with an open or closed toe. They come in beige, black, or chestnut. Designed with a very soft inside, Varin Neuropathic are ideal for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy.
