Are compression stockings worth the cost?

Compression: Yes, so long as this is directed from your clinician. We need to know that your arteries are okay and then we can determine the correct level of compression. The levels of compression are measured in millimeters of mercury pressure. I work every day in a wound center and wear compression every day!
