Frequent Asked Questions

Compression Therapy

Any compression therapy garment above 30 mmHg requires a prescription from a health professional.

Hand wash daily using a small portion of special compression garment washing detergent or another mild soap in warm water. When using a washing machine, we recommend using a garment bag. Hang to dry or use the lowest permanent press setting if using a dryer.

Replace your compression stockings every four or six months to maintain the proper shape and compression level. If they start feeling loose, it is time for a new pair.

Compression garments should not be worn at night while sleeping. However, you may want to look into getting a night garment. Ask our certified fitters fro more information.
