Quality compression wraps for lymphedema to keep you going
Compression Therapy for Poor Circulation
To restore or improve circulation, graduated compression garments are often part of a management plan. Compression stockings are designed to provide support to the legs and veins, assist with circulation, and minimize swelling. The compression is graduated, with the strongest support starting at the ankles and gradually decreasing towards the top of the garment. As a person moves, graduated compression stockings apply pressure to the outside of the veins to help reduce their size, help the valves close and aid in returning blood back to the heart. The combination of graduated compression stockings plus leg activity can help improve blood circulation and give you more freedom to move.
Compression Therapy for Lymphedema
Lymphedema is a condition that affects the lymphatic vessels, which are responsible for transporting protein-rich lymph fluid back into the circulatory system. When lymph vessels are unable to transport this fluid properly, a build-up occurs, resulting in swelling and the thickening of the skin. Although there is no cure, wearing compression garments is one of the most important aspects of managing lymphedema. Compression garments are designed to keep a continuous pressure on the swollen/affected area to assist the drainage of fluid and minimize swelling.
