Compression Therapy

Bandaging of the affected limb follows each MLD session. This is a precise and accurate procedure using specific bandages and interfacing materials.

Lymphedema Garments
This type of medical compression wear includes all elastic garments such as snug-fitting sleeves or stockings or body suits that are used to reduce the swelling caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissue.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LYMPHEDEMA COMPRESSION GARMENTS?

  • They can reduce/prevent fluid build-up in the area where they are applied
  • Compression garments can assist the natural muscle pump function to move blood and fluid efficiently
  • Compression can help force fluid away from one area to an area where it can be drained more effectively by the lymph system
