2. When Are They Used?

There are plenty of reasons to wear compression stockings or socks other than being elderly. Women might choose to wear them on flights where there are changes of air pressure, if you are pregnant, and if you are an athlete to make your circulation better and improve your recovery rates in between training sessions and contests. Some people who have office jobs have spoken about the positive effect of compression stockings. When you think about, you might sit at your desk every day for even longer than you would sit on an airplane!
