Open Toe Stockings
If you're living with a chronic leg condition, you want to ensure that your legs remain pain free, which can maximize your mobility. Open toe compression stockings available at Walgreens serve a variety of important purposes if you live with short- or long-term leg discomfort. Be sure to ask your doctor if and what type of stocking is right for you. He or she will also tell you how long you should wear your compression stockings. Individuals with more serious symptoms or those with certain medical conditions may need special compression stockings available only with a doctor's prescription.

Chronic aches and pains, post-surgery leg pain, swelling, or varicose veins may be relieved with the help of compression stockings. Additionally, compression stockings can help to improve circulation in your legs. They are often recommended for individuals who remain on their feet or sit in place all day.
