The Benefits of Compression Therapy
Lymphedema compression leg wraps are easy medical garments for anyone to use. By wrapping the fabric tightly around your leg, you can move fluid away from the limb thereby effectively reducing swelling, aching, or tightness usually common with lymphedema or edema.
We offer a wide range of leg wraps with varying degrees of compression, so you can easily find one that best suits your personal needs — and will help you get back to your daily routine even faster.

FAQs About Lymphedema Leg Wraps
How Do Leg Compression Wraps Help with Lymphedema?
Anyone who has suffered through lymphatic swelling knows that the side effects can be debilitating. Tight and itchy skin, aching limbs, and limited mobility can impede on your daily life — but compression garments can help you regain some normalcy.
A lymphedema leg wrap applies consistent pressure to your leg wherever you need it (foot, calf, knee, or thigh). This pressure helps your blood vessels and lymph nodes to work more effectively, allowing fluid to flow through the body and avoid blockages.
Should I get a Leg Wrap or Compression Socks?
Lymphedema leg compression wraps and compression socks are both effective garments for dealing with lymphedema. They both apply firm and constant pressure to the leg, allowing blood and lymphatic fluid to move through the body without incident. However, there is one major difference between the two: how they’re worn.
Compression socks slide onto the foot like any other pair of socks. This can be difficult for some individuals, as the compression fabric can be tough to pull over your foot and leg (particularly if the limb is already swollen).
Lymphedema leg wraps, on the other hand, use a series of straps to surround and compress the leg. Wraps are often easier to put on and allow you to control the degree of compression you need, which makes them a great choice for anyone who doesn’t have the dexterity for compression socks.
Can Anyone Use Lymphedema Leg Wraps?
Absolutely. While lymphedema leg compression wraps are designed with lymphedema patients in mind, anyone can use them to treat swelling or discomfort in their legs.
If you are pregnant, recovering from surgery, or even standing all day for your job, you can benefit from some form of compression garment for your legs — and if you don’t have the dexterity to wear traditional compression socks, leg wraps are a great solution.
