Lymphedema is a chronic condition that causes swelling and discomfort, but compression garments can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
Compression garments are a critical component of lymphedema management. These specialized garments apply pressure to the affected limb, which helps to increase blood and lymphatic fluid flow. The pressure from the garment also helps to prevent the accumulation of fluid in the affected area, reducing swelling and discomfort.
The benefits of compression garments for lymphedema management include reducing swelling, improving mobility and function, and preventing complications such as infections and skin breakdown. The level of compression needed can vary depending on the severity of the lymphedema, which is why it’s important to have a professional fitting to ensure the proper compression level and fit.
