A compression fitting service for lymphedema and lipedema is a specialized therapeutic intervention designed to address swelling and fluid retention in the limbs. It involves the application and customization of compression garments or wraps to provide controlled pressure on the affected areas, facilitating the reduction of swelling and promoting improved lymphatic and circulatory function.
THE KEY ASPECTS OF OUR CALGARY COMPRESSION FITTING SERVICES
The process begins with a thorough assessment of the affected limbs to determine the optimal compression level and garment type. A trained professional takes precise measurements to ensure a tailored fit that effectively addresses the individual’s unique needs.
Compression garments, such as sleeves, stockings, or wraps, are chosen based on the severity and location of the swelling. These garments are designed to exert graduated pressure, meaning they are tighter at the extremities and gradually decrease in pressure towards the core. This helps encourage the proper flow of lymphatic fluid and minimizes the risk of discomfort or constriction.

Lymphedema and Lipedema Management:
The compression fitting service is particularly beneficial for individuals with lymphedema and lipedema, conditions characterized by abnormal swelling due to impaired lymphatic drainage. The controlled pressure applied by the compression garments aids in reducing swelling, managing symptoms, and improving overall limb functionality.
Compression fittings work by promoting blood and lymphatic circulation. This enhanced circulation helps prevent the accumulation of excess fluid in the tissues, reducing the severity of symptoms and promoting a more comfortable and functional range of motion.
A crucial component of the service involves educating individuals on the proper use and care of compression garments. Patients are guided on how to wear, remove, and maintain these garments to maximize their effectiveness and ensure long-term benefits.
Monitoring and Adjustments:
The fitting service is an ongoing process that may require adjustments based on changes in the individual’s condition or treatment progress. Regular monitoring allows healthcare professionals to adapt the compression fitting strategy to the evolving needs of the patient.
Overall, a compression fitting service for lymphedema and lipedema is a comprehensive and patient-centered approach aimed at managing and alleviating the symptoms associated with these conditions. By providing tailored compression solutions, individuals can experience improved comfort, reduced swelling, and enhanced quality of life.
