Holistic Medical Clinic is a certified fitter of Sigvaris, a leading-edge manufacturer of compression garments. Sigvaris produces a wide variety of compression socks, compression stockings, pantyhose and sleeves that range in compression levels from 15-20 mmHg to 40+ mmHg, to fit many lifestyles and medical indications.
Prior to ordering a compression garment that your doctor prescribed to you, it is vital to get properly measured and discuss your lifestyle needs with the certified Sigvaris fitter. This is to ensure that the garment you wear is appropriate, comfortable and delivers the optimal results. As Sigvaris-certified fitters, we are here to help you get the best compression wear you need!
During the Sigvaris compression fitting, we will explain to you in detail how compression works to alleviate or prevent symptoms, take measurements of both of your legs and record this information. You have a lot of options when it comes to your compression garment style and colour. Once you choose the ones you prefer, we will demonstrate how to put your compression garments on and how to take them off. We will also make sure you are comfortable donning the garment by yourself.
Whether you choose Sigvaris compression socks and stockings or another brand, it is important to wear your compression garments every day, from morning till night, to ensure their effectiveness. Compression wear only works if it is worn properly and daily!
