You May Ask: Why do my Legs Feel so Tired and Ache with Pain?
Without sufficient blood levels in the legs and feet the body loses energy and becomes fatigued. This is the most common complaint is fatigue and leg Pain. When muscles in our legs do not receive a significant amount of blood to properly function, this causes discomfort, achiness, muscle weakness and fatigue and sometimes numbness or tingling of the feet and legs. All these symptoms occur because your body quickly falls tired when the heart is working harder to keep up blood circulation.
You May Ask: How do Graduated Compression Socks / Stockings – WORK?
Graduated Compression stockings / socks are medically designed to improve circulation. These medical socks apply pressure to the veins in your legs making it easier for the vein values to return blood back more effectively up to your heart to help prevent edema and the pooling of blood in your lower legs.
Graduated Compression stockings are manufactured in various strengths, which means the stockings offer more compression pressure around the foot and ankle and the pressure reduces further up the leg.
Understanding the way graduated compression / pressure works is:
100% pressure on the Ankle
70% pressure on the Calf
40% pressure on the upper Thigh
Understanding the Different Compression Levels
The various strength and range of compression will be followed by the letters “mmHg” a medical abbreviation which stands for “millimeter of mercury.” MmHg is a standard unit of measurement used to express compression strength with the medical industry.
For Everyday – Light & Mild Compression:
- (Light) 8-15 mmHg compression stocking level: This particular level of compression, provides support for minor swelling, tiredness, aches and preventing varicose veins. Some diabetic socks are designed with light strength to improve circulation in the lower extremities.
- (Mild) 15-20 mmHg compression stocking level: These compression stockings will have slightly more pressure, often recommended to people whose legs are prone to swelling and fatigue. Ideal for traveling on flights and preventing DVT for long distance travel or when seated for an extended period of time.
For Medium to Strong Compression: (often prescribed by a physician)
- (Medium) 20-30 mmHg compression stocking level: This is the most widely prescribed compression level. Suitable for everyday use. People who experience more severe swelling and various vascular problems, including “venous insufficiencies” and peripheral vascular disease. Helps prevent severe varicose veins, edema, thrombophlebitis, orthostatic hypotension and DVT.
- (Firm) 30-40 mmHg compression stocking level: This level of compression stockings is mostly used to combat diseases like “lymphedema” and chronic severe venous insufficiency, which occurs when damaged values in the leg’s lead to blood pooling in the leg causing much pain, which can lead to skin damage and leg ulcers, if not treated.

Please Take Note…It’s always good to get a full vascular evaluation, if you have a medical condition related to arterial circulation problems or see a vein-specialists to determine the precise reason behind leg swelling and accompanying symptoms.
