Compression Therapy

Edema, or swelling caused by excess fluid that has become trapped in body tissues, is the result of a hydrostatic pressure-based imbalance in normal fluid exchange caused by an increase in filtration and/or a decrease in absorption of fluids at the capillary level. The application of compression from an external compression wrap/bandage or pneumatic compression device/pump works in conjunction with muscle contraction to stimulate the venous and lymphatic capillaries to absorb excess fluid, reducing the edema, improving vascular nutrition, and even help in wound healing. Compression garments are primarily used to maintain the achieved reduction in edema and enhance daily functionality.
