Compression bandaging is an important part of reducing a swollen limb. The bandages provide resistance against the skin and muscles underneath. This resistance increases reabsorption of fluid from the tissues and does not allow the limb to refill. It is important to use the right type of bandaging product and apply the bandages so that there is more pressure at the end of the limb (fingers, or toes) and less pressure as the bandage is wrapped up towards the body.
The reason the bandage is called "short stretch" is because it does not stretch much thereby providing resisitance against the working muscles. A short stretch bandage IS NOT AN "ACE" BANDAGE! Ace Bandages are not appropriate for lymphedema therapy and in fact may cause discomfort or pain and increase the swelling!
Secure the bandages with tape. Never use the clips that come with the bandages as they make holes in the bandage and can nick fingers.
