Compression Therapy

Compression therapy is designed to increase circulation to reduce edema, help heal ulcers and decrease the symptoms of venous insufficiency. Compression garments are also worn to help maintain swelling associated with lymphedema. There are several different styles of compression garments which is why it is important to be fit by a certified fitter to ensure proper garments are provided based on your individual needs. MSMOP offers custom fit and custom made compression garments both for day and night time use. At MSMOP, we evaluate your condition and provide you with the proper compression garments that can best help you.

Do you have lymphoedema or are you concerned you might develop it?

Lymphoedema can develop immediately following breast cancer treatment, but sometimes symptoms don’t appear until months or even years afterwards.

What Is the Cause of Lymphoedema?

The lymphatic system is one of the body’s natural defences against infection. Lymphatic fluid removes bacteria and waste from our tissues, passing it via a fine network of vessels to our lymph nodes, where it is cleansed.

If the system is damaged, the lymphatic channels can get blocked, which results in fluid pooling in the limbs and causing swelling. This uncomfortable condition is known as secondary lymphoedema (as opposed to primary lymphoedoema, which is caused by a genetic disorder).

Secondary lymphoedema is often a symptom of breast cancer treatment because of damage caused by either surgery or radiation. The first signs include a feeling of heaviness, usually in the arm, tightness in the skin and swelling in the affected area.

Unfortunately if you’re about to undergo breast cancer treatment, there is nothing you can do to guard against lymphoedema. However, lymphatic therapist Michael Villemin is adamant that every woman should be made aware of the risks by her consultant before treatment begins.

“Results are much better if treatment of the condition is started in its early stages,” he says. “Yet often a woman will go to her medical team in some discomfort and be told that they can’t help her. It’s only then that she may start to look around for information and help from elsewhere.”
