About Leg Health

Approximately 45 percent of women and 20 percent of men experience vein health problems by the age of 30, making early detection very important in order to prevent serious complications. Many people have the common symptoms for venous diseases but do not realize the health risks involved if these symptoms are ignored.

Many things can trigger vein health problems including extensive standing and obesity. Symptoms include leg fatigue, aching, cramping, swelling and discoloration. It is recommended to wear support stockings and this is where we help you. Our goal at The Perfect Fit is to provide you garment options before your pain becomes unbearable. If your legs already have painful varicose or spider veins, you may want to visit us for a free consultation.

Spider Veins

Very small blood vessels just below the skin’s surface that cause webs of blue, purple or red veins and can become damaged. Once this damage has occurred it is not reversible. By wearing compression stockings, you can alleviate the discomfort spider veins may cause and may prevent them from getting worse. 

Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins

Occurs when vein damage causes the blood to flow in the wrong direction. Blood then accumulates or pools in the veins. This causes swelling and may cause tired, aching and itching legs. Legs may also feel heavy and have  bulging or twisted veins that stand out from the leg. By wearing compression stockings, they provide a gradient compression that will aid the vein in pumping the fluid back in the correct direction. Graduated compression stockings have been known to give the most relief if they are fitted properly with the correct amount of gradient pressure. This pressure is known as millimeters of mercury pressure. Consult your fitter to find the best fit.
