The Power Of Using A Compression Bandage As Treatment


When it comes to the proper management of lymphedema and the swelling which accompanies the condition it is important to find the right compression bandage in order to help address the swelling and keep it reduced after the treatment is completed. Having the right compression bandage can make the difference between a smooth recovery with no setbacks and one which may not go as successfully as it would have if another type of compression wrap had been used to treat the swollen area of the body.

The power of a compression bandage comes from its ability to apply pressure to a certain portion of the body and insure that the swelling which was occurring does not reoccur after the treatment. With lymphedema there is generally a decent amount of swelling that occurs in the afflicted area. Once this is treated with drainage techniques such as specialized massage as well as other methods it is important to have the right kind of bandage available to follow up on the treatment. Proper use of bandages can help insure that the treatment is as successful as possible and that no negative setbacks occur.


Choosing the right compression bandage for your condition is all about selecting the power of the compression. There are many different bandages which range from very weak to very strong compression. You should consult a medical professional to decide which type of compression is best to treat your condition as every single case is different and the right choice will depend on the answers to a wide variety of questions that only you and your attending physician can answer together. Once you have figured out which level of compression is best all you need to do is purchase the bandage and apply it as directed by your physician and lymphedema therapist.

Following the direction of your doctor and therapist in the application of your compression bandage will give you the best opportunity to make a solid recovery and be able to return to your normal life as soon as possible. There is nothing more important than following the medical advice of the authority who is in charge of your case. Beyond that you can make sure that you have the best implements that you can find to help treat your condition and speed your recovery as much as possible.
