Compression Stockings

These stocking provide compression to the legs with the level of compression decreasing as you move up the leg from the ankle to the thigh. Compression stockings help to decrease peripheral venous pooling (a major problem in POTS) and increase venous return to the heart. The most effective stockings offer at least 30-40 mmHg of compression and are waist high.
