What is Lymphedema?

Lymphedema refers to a condition in which excess fluid is collected in tissues and causes swelling due to blockage in the lymphatic system. It is commonly caused due to damage or removal of the lymph nodes as a part of cancer treatment. Sometimes lymphedema can be a congenital anomaly present at birth. Lymphedema often occurs in the upper extremities or lower extremities but can also occur in other areas like the face, neck, trunk, abdomen, and genitals. Along with the swelling, there can be a pain, numbness, tightness, and also infection.


While currently, there is no cure for lymphedema, one can control it. Swelling may be brought down and discomfort reduced. For mild lymphedema, a compression garment may be the initial treatment. For moderate to severe lymphedema, the treatment program, CDT, or Complex decongestive physiotherapy is recommended. It combines several therapies like direct lymphatic massage, exercise, compression garments, and lymphedema pumps.


At HPFY, we offer a wide range of compression garments like socks, stockings, gloves, gauntlets, sleeves, and bras to control lymphedema effectively and safely. They aid in bringing down the swelling significantly. These are manufactured by leading names like BSN Medical and Wear Ease Inc. to name a few.


What are Compression Garments?

Compression garments play a pivotal role in maintaining the results obtained through CDT. The lymphatic fluids are removed using a series of therapies, and treatments would accumulate again without compression making long-term lymphedema management impossible. Compression garments are made up of various materials and provide varying levels of compression, from gentle to extra firm. The external support and compression provided by compression garments are very important in the management of lymphedema. The lymphatic fluids that are removed using a series of therapies and treatments would accumulate again without compression making long-term lymphedema management impossible.
