Say Goodbye To Poor Circulation With Compression

Dealing with pain and swelling in your legs or arms is quite tiring.

It can be caused by extended periods of sitting or standing, pregnancy, or vigorous physical activity. If you are suffering from this, it’s normal to feel confused or stressed about it.

Maybe you have even tried painkillers or alternative medicines.

But have you heard of Compression Therapy?

This article covers everything you need to know about Compression and how it can help you forget about constant pain and swelling in your extremities.

What is Compression Therapy and how does it work?

Your body is like a diamond: unique, priceless, and strong.

Diamonds are made under pressure.

Compression works in a similar way, helping your body heal under pressure.

It is a type of treatment that uses pressure to improve blood flow and promote healing, therefore helping to reduce swelling and improve circulation.

But how does it work?

Compression works by adding controlled, dynamic pressure to areas where flow may be slightly restricted. This means that Compression can help you to loosen venous pressure and may aid the body in moving blood toward the heart.

The pressure is applied using special devices, such as compression bandages or garments like socks.

You may have seen people wearing compression socks, sleeves, or wraps. These are amazing for everyday use, but sometimes you may need something more efficient.

At Restore Hyper Wellness South Mount Pleasant, you can enjoy the benefits of NormaTec Pulse Rx 2.0 technology, which is the gold standard in Compression.

The frequency of compression will depend on the condition being treated. For example, milder conditions may require less frequent Compression. In contrast, more severe conditions may require daily Compression. You can also customize the intensity of pressure based on your comfort level.

People love Compression because this is a non-invasive, relaxing treatment you can truly enjoy.

But the best part is how you feel after the treatment.

What does Compression help with?

Compression isn’t a new treatment.

Historians say that the first form of Compression was used at the time of Hippocrates, around 400 years B.C!

The popularity of Compression lies in its power to treat various medical conditions.

The most common conditions treated with Compression are:

But the list doesn’t end here because Compression may even help prevent deep vein thrombosis.

Improving the quality of life

While Compression is a convenient, non-invasive treatment with little to no side effects, it is not recommended for everyone.

People with a history of blood clots or deep vein thrombosis should avoid Compression.

But what are the real benefits of Compression Therapy?

Clients often say they feel lighter after Compression and love how convenient it is to take care of their health with this treatment.

While Compression can help you improve the quality of your life, this is not the main reason people choose this treatment instead of many others.
