20-30 mmHg compression is often referred to as Class I or firm compression. For the millions of people who suffer from venous disorders, 20-30 mmHg compression socks help promote venous blood flow, as well as prevent and relieve painful symptoms.
This level is the most commonly prescribed compression level and is typically used to reduce mild to moderate edema (swelling) or “heaviness” in the legs that is caused by poor blood circulation. People who suffer from lymphedema can also use 20-30 mmHg compression stockings to reduce swelling in their legs or compression sleeves to reduce swelling in their arms.
In addition to swelling, many doctors recommend 20-30 mmHg compression stockings to people who are recovering from vein surgeries such as vein stripping or sclerotherapy. Compression stockings help prevent the reappearance of spider and varicose veins that were removed during these surgeries. The socks can also provide relief from the painful symptoms that accompany varicose veins. Similarly, expecting mothers can use 20-30 mmHg compression socks during their pregnancy to help prevent varicose veins from forming.
Graduated compression therapy is also used to treat and prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and relieve superficial thrombophlebitis. If you suffer from either one of these blood clot conditions, you can benefit from the healing effects of 20-30 mmHg compression socks.
