Q&A - MY COMPRESSION SOCKS ARE PINCHING

Jilanne Rose, DNP ANP-BC
March 26, 2018

Question: The knee-high compression sock is pinching the top of my knee and leaving sore marks (indentations). My job requires me to stand all day. I have spider veins in my ankles and on the side of my outer calf. Should I continue to wear the stocking even though it’s uncomfortable?

Answer: No, any compression that is worn should be comfortable and supportive, and not cause additional pain. The type of stocking, length and size can all be adjusted for a more comfortable fit.
