Compression bandaging is an important component of in the overall management of Lymphoedema.
How it works?
- It helps prevent the re-accumulation of excess fluid build-up
- Reduces filtration - leads to excess build up in affected area
- Enhances the muscles and joint pump action during exercise which helps propel the fluid onwards
- Helps to soften tissue that has built up ( scar tissue known as Lymphostatic fibrosis)
