Big ticket stores vs eCommerce vs Therapeutic garment fitter

So........ you've been wearing a compression garment OR your clinician has suggested that you wear a compression garment.

It's time to educate yourself about where to go and get your garment.

Many clinicians will tell you the names of a couple places where you can go to get fitted for a compression garment or they will give you a list of places.

Unfortunately, the majority of people will go the route of a catalog or pharmaceutical type store and never get fitted properly for their clinical garment.

Why is this?

#1. Cost of the garment
#2. Old wives tales of the fit of the garment
#3. They don't know how to put on the garment and don't realize the accessories to help them put on the garment.
#4. Many DME's (Durable Medical Equipment) companies only sell basic colored garments and do not offer alternatives
#5. Catalogs offer colors BUT they do not offer a doctor prescribed garment if you receive a prescription.

So, just a word to the wise CAUTION on
* WHAT you purchase
* WHERE you purchase and the....
* WHY of the purchase

It's best to be fitted properly by a Certified Compression Garment Fitter...ALWAYS, before your purchase be fitted (I can't stress this enough) and then try the product on and practice putting the garment ON and taking the garment OFF with your Certified Fitter.

Try a company like, Salon Rx, that comes to your house and fits you for compression garment in the privacy and comforts of your own home or office.
