AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED COMPRESSION
Leg swelling can be caused by a number of things. Often times it occurs when a person sits or stands for prolonged periods of time. Swelling can also occur from fluid retention, athletic injury, venous insufficiency, pregnancy, or poor blood circulation. Excess swelling can cause pain, lead to more dangerous conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, or even be a sign of other serious conditions. It’s important to treat and relieve swelling.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Relieve and Prevent Swelling
Compression is one of the best ways to treat leg swelling. The graduated pressure from gradient compression helps the body to absorb excess fluid. It also encourages blood to flow back to the heart improving circulation. It can help to repair tissue damage with the increase in oxygen. Finally, compression can help to prevent more serious health conditions such as DVT.
