Compression Therapy is the application of graduated external pressure to the affected limb to reduce venous pressure within the limb. Graduated pressure means providing highest pressure at the ankle and decreasing pressure going up the leg. This helps in venous return, reducing venous pressure, preventing venous stasis and deterioration of venous walls, thus reducing venous leg complaints such as heaviness and pain. Benefits of this therapy are restoration and improvement of blood flow, reduction of edema and preventing progression of venous and lymphatic diseases.
