Compression- How does it work? What is it for?

Compression garments & tools work by applying pressure to a specific area of the body to improve venous blood return and improve circulation, which can have several benefits for overall health.

 

Compression therapy is commonly recommended for individuals with medical conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins, lymphedema, and edema.

 

Additionally, athletes and individuals who engage in physical activities often use compression garments to enhance performance, reduce muscle fatigue, reduce recovery time, and prevent injuries such as shin splints or muscle strains. 

Your Lymph System & Lymphedema

The lymph system plays a crucial role in maintaining the body's immune system and overall fluid balance. It consists of a network of lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and lymphatic organs.

 

Lymphedema occurs when there is a blockage or damage to the lymphatic system, causing a buildup of lymph fluid. This condition typically manifests as swelling, usually in the arms or legs, which can be painful and limit mobility.

 

Compression therapy is often used as a treatment for lymphedema. It involves wearing specially designed compression garments or using bandages to apply controlled pressure to the affected area. This compression helps reduce swelling by promoting lymph fluid drainage and improving the overall functioning of the lymphatic system. While compression therapy does not cure lymphedema, it can effectively manage the symptoms and improve quality of life for individuals with this condition.

The Leduc Physio team offers custom compression garment assessments and fittings.
