Compression garments can help you manage the symptoms of lymphedema.
Within the human body, the lymphatic system is a vital part of the circulatory system, and it significantly impacts the immune system as well. When this system gets blocked, lymphedema develops. This condition usually affects one of the legs or one of the arms, and in some cases, both arms or both legs. While incurable, lymphedema can be controlled with progressive and dynamic treatments.
At Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, we offer compression garments designed for decongestive therapy, which is one of the most effective ways to control lymphedema. Our lymphedema compression garments include everything from bras to stockings, gloves, sleeves, and shorts for both nighttime and daytime use.
If you have lymphedema, we cannot stress enough how important it is to wear your compression garments, except when you swim, bathe, or shower. Compression garments can ease your discomfort and swelling, especially when you perform physical activities, like exercising, gardening, or cleaning, as this repetitive motion will increase your body’s circulation levels.
Our goal is to help you manage your lymphedema symptoms, so this condition does not get in the way of your normal routine. Our qualified, compassionate staff focuses on providing customized solutions and adjusting when needed for the best possible result.
If you have questions about lymphedema and how compression garments can help, please reach out to us at Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics today. We look forward to hearing from you!
