What are Compression Socks and Stockings?


Compression socks and stockings improve circulation, reduce swelling and tiredness, and improve performance in the lower body by improving blood flow. These stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the ankle and gradually decrease towards the top of the stocking.


Are you a potential candidate for compression socks and stockings?

  • Do you experience tired or achy legs?
  • Do you experience swollen feet, ankles, or legs?
  • Are you sitting or standing for long periods of the day?
  • Are you an expectant mother?
  • Are you a smoker or diabetic?
  • Are you a participant in endurance sports?
  • Do you carry excessive weight?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you may be a candidate for Compression Stockings. Please contact Dr. Ettenson at 416-255-2200 for more information. We can perform the measurements and will help you choose the appropriate product from a wide selection of women’s, men’s and unisex stockings.

Does my insurance plan cover Compression Stockings?

Yes. Most insurance plans will cover Compression Stockings through your private extended health care and workplace health plans. You may require a Medical Doctor’s diagnosis and referral. After receiving your compression hosiery, you will be issued a receipt that you can directly send to your insurance company to reimburse the cost of your Compression Stockings.
