compression GARMENTS

 

Compression wear supports leg and arm health

 Compression garments are available for any part of your body and are most often used to manage leg, foot and arm health. They provide comfortable support to tissues and keep swelling away. Many people use compression wear in conjunction with MLD therapy.


The MLD Clinic custom fits and sells compression wear (with and without MLD therapy sessions). Getting the right compression garment for you is vital. If it fits well and is comfortable, you'll be more inclined to wear it and experience the benefits. We help people avoid the frustrations that come with off-the-shelf compression wear.


Why would I use compression wear?​​

  • Swelling disorders - To manage the chronic symptoms of lymphedema, lipedema and CVI (leg vein-related issues)
  • Leg health - With varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), venous ulcers, and swollen/aching legs
  • Diabetes - To reduce foot, ankle, calf and leg swelling
  • Travel - To avoid swelling and reduce the potential for blood clots during long flights
  • Arthritis - Address the swelling and pain from rheumatoid arthritis
  • Prolonged standing or sitting at work - Many professionals use compression to support their legs, keep swelling at bay and help with circulation
  • Pregnancy - To prevent varicose veins and reduce leg swelling
  • Sports - To support legs and reduce swelling (not to improve performance, as many articles claim!)
