I'm sure we all know that the healthcare professions are known for giving varicose veins with the long hours of standing. I am a new nurse and I'm already starting to see the dreaded little squiggly veins in my calves. My question is, would knee high compression stocking honestly help, or would knee high socks do about the same thing? I love my job, but I don't want to sacrifice my body or health. I need to find a good way to keep my legs healthy, while working a job where I'm standing for atleast 7 of the 8 hours.Any suggestions!?
