Compression Bandaging

The Compression Bandaging program benefits orthopedic patients with acute and sub-acute post traumatic and post-operative lower extremity edema. The physical therapists involved in the program have been trained in the application of short stretch bandages for edema reduction. This may be performed in conjunction with other physical therapy services, including incision care and therapeutic exercise.

In post-operative patients, compression bandaging is beneficial in promoting incision healing, preventing wound complications and assisting with pain management, by early management of swelling. Typically compression bandaging is initiated within 1-3 days post-operative or after hospital discharge.

Compression bandaging is also beneficial in non-surgical patients and pre-operatively in traumatic injuries to assist with edema management.
