Join us for Healthy Leg Day!
You may have signs or symptoms of a vein disorder and not even realize it. According to the Vascular Disease Foundation, as many as 20-25 million North Americans have varicose veins. Some common examples of Venous disorders are swelling and leg pain, spider veins, varicose veins, edema, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and leg ulcers. Venous circulation problems can progressively worsen over time and can affect your overall health and quality of life. Luckily, there is a simple solution to help.
If you are someone who stands or sits for long periods during the day if you are pregnant, are a frequent traveler, have varicose or spider veins, or if you have ever felt discomfort in your legs, please join us on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 for our Healthy Leg Day!

Leg health is something often forgotten or not taken seriously but can help tremendously with your overall health and wellbeing. It can be as simple as wearing a special type of sock. SIGVARIS is the world’s leading manufacturer of Medical Compression Socks and has an extensive line of both prescription and nonprescription socks. We are very proud to offer SIGVARIS compression socks to you that will suit your health needs and lifestyle.
