Compression Bandaging for Lymphedema Albuquerque

Compression Bandaging

As part of Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), compression bandaging is applied to the affected area.  

Bandaging helps:

  • Keep fluid from returning to the area
  • Assists the lymphatic system in pumping fluid out of the affected area as the body moves
  • Breaks up hard (fibrotic) tissues, making the area softer.

If a person is able to use Electro-Lymphatic Drainage (ELT), the necessity for compression bandaging is often minimized.

Compression Garments

Lymphedema is managed long-term (following Complete Decongestive Therapy) by wearing specially fitted compression garments.
