Compression Therapy for Recovery
Doctors often prescribe it to prevent venous insufficiency from becoming more serious. Compression therapy works and can improve the quality of life for people with many conditions.
What is Compression Therapy?
Compression therapy uses controlled pressure to increase blood flow in the legs and also to improve blood flow to the heart. At the same time, it decreases swelling and supports your veins.
Compression Therapy is a well-researched treatment to:
- manage vein problems
- manage lymphedema (swelling) and pain in the legs
- prevent blood clots after surgery
- help wound healing, specifically ulcers
- manage leg pain symptoms during pregnancy
- improve chronic venous insufficiency and ulcer recurrence in older adults
A more recent use for compression therapy is to aid in athletic performance or workout recovery. Research on athletic use has had mixed results, though.
Increases blood flow / circulation
- Promotes healing and recovery
Decreases muscle fatigue after acute exercise
Compression Therapy also helps you recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation.
