With all of the compression levels available, how do you know which one is right for you?
This is perhaps one of the most common questions people have when they consider wearing compression legwear for the first time.
First and foremost, you should always consult your doctor of other health care provider when it comes to what level of compression you should wear.
Fortunately, you can also check out this simple breakdown of the different compression levels and learn who they may benefit the most:
