Best Compression Stockings For Lymphedema

HOW CAN I REDUCE PAIN AND SWELLING CAUSED FROM LYMPHEDEMA?

Lymphedema refers to the swelling that can occur in your arms, legs and sometimes in both limbs at the same time. This condition is caused from blockage to the lymphatic system when lymph nodes are removed or damaged. This prevents fluid from being drained, leading to a build up of fluid and hence swelling. Common symptoms of lymphedema include: swelling in part or all of your limbs, feelings of tightness, reduced range of movement, aching or discomfort.

Bauerfeind’s high-quality medical-grade compression stockings are designed to target and manage these uncomfortable symptoms of lymphedema. Made with 50% microfibre, the stockings are soft and gentle on your skin. Moisture is transported away and air can circulate to your skin, preventing any unpleasant build-up of heat whilst providing adequate compression to reduce swelling. In addition to its contemporary stylish look, the elastic knit also stimulates blood circulation. The VenoTrain range is available in a range of compression classes (depending on your needs) and styles including colour, open/closed toe and height.

 

HOW TO TREAT OR MANAGE SYMPTOMS OF LYMPHEDEMA?

Wear compression stockings to compress on areas that are swelling and encourage flow of lymphatic fluid away from the limb that is affected. Exercise is a great lifestyle intervention to manage your symptoms of swelling and pain. Seek advice from your exercise physiologist or specialist for the best modes of exercise. Any severe pain or aggravation of symptoms should be consulted with your doctor ASAP. Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent pain.
