Body shaper reply/compression stockings



I have had the venus reflux test and it showed insufficiency in the deep and superficial in my thigh and groin in one leg,my Dr. said a valve was sprung. My question is would knee highs help just as well as compression Chaps or pantyhose beings the problems is so far up my leg?

Thanks again


Knee highs can help as the lower legs are often where people with venous insufficiency experience the most discomfort. Give them a try in the 15-20 mmHg weight range. Good Luck!
