Compression Garments

Compression garments or stockings are used in the maintenance stage of lymphedema management.  The type and compression strength of the garments will be determined by the severity of your lymphedema.  It is vital that the compression garments are measured to you and fit well.  If the garments are not well fitting, they could make the lymphedema worse.
