Sigvaris Compression Stockings are the medicine you wear on your legs.
Compression stockings provide support to your veins and help the calf muscle pump blood back to the heart. Compression stockings help reduce swelling and decrease the tired, aching feeling that you get in your legs. For anyone dealing with edema, varicose veins, spider veins, chronic venous insufficiency or deep vein thrombosis (DVT), compression stockings are what you need.
Sigvaris has various product lines designed to fit everyone's lifestyle. Sigvaris stockings can improve your circulation, increase your energy and keep your legs healthy. Your physician, pharmacist or Sigvaris certified fitter can help you determine which Sigvaris product is right for you.
Sigvaris guarantees the compression level in their products for 6 months.

- People who travel frequently or are taking long flights
- Women who are pregnant

Healthy Leg Tips for your veins:
