Compression treatment

  1. The positive results derived from lymphoedema treatment are attributed mainly to compression. Compression bandages assist during the decongestion phase whereas compression stockings take care of the maintenance phase.
  2. Short compression bandage usage is mandatory after any lymphatic drainage. This assists in the process, both during rest and exercise, due to its property of being a good resistant.
  3. After decongestion phase, the maintenance is done using flat-knitted compression stockings, instead of the short-stretch bandages. The difference between these compression stockings with the ones used for venous treatment are that these are seamed and less elastic. They are also more resistant to wear-and-tear.
  4. These stockings are custom made to measure as it should be a perfect fit and thereby requires expert advice and trained specialist personnel for application.
