I have some problems behind my knee. Is it okay to wear a Knee high Compression Stocking?

If you have varicose veins, swelling or a blood clot behind your knee, a knee high compression stocking will not be able to address the issue there. Knee high compression socks and stockings stop below the back of the bend of the knee.

If you want to address the area behind or above the knee, you’ll need to wear a thigh high or a waist high (panthose, maternity, men’s leotard).
