Compression Garments

What are compression garments?

Compression can help reduce and control lymphoedema. It does this by limiting lymph fluid build up and helping the fluid move to an area that is draining well. It also provides support that helps muscles pump fluid away.

Compression garments are available in different levels or grades of pressure. The garment you have will depend on how much swelling there is, and the part of the body affected.

It is important that someone who is experienced in measuring and fitting compression garments fits your garment. Your lymphoedema specialist may prescribe and fit you with a compression garment. Your GP can also prescribe garments, but usually only on the advice of your lymphoedema specialist.
