Compression Therapy & Cancer Treatment

Circaid Reduction Arm Compression Care Wrap

Cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation can have significant effects on the lymph system. The lymph system, which consists of lymph nodes, vessels, and organs, plays a crucial role in the body's immune system and fluid balance. However, these treatments can cause damage to the lymph nodes and vessels, leading to lymphedema, a condition where lymph fluid accumulates in certain parts of the body, such as the arms or legs.

Chemotherapy drugs can directly harm the lymph nodes and vessels, while radiation therapy may cause scar tissue formation, obstructing the normal flow of lymph fluid. Both these factors can result in lymphedema, which is characterized by swelling, discomfort, and increased susceptibility to infections.


To mitigate the discomfort associated with lymphedema and facilitate lymph drainage, gradient compression garments are often recommended. These garments are specially designed to apply varying levels of pressure, with the highest pressure being exerted at the extremities and gradually decreasing towards the trunk. This gradient pressure helps to promote the circulation and flow of lymph fluid, preventing or reducing swelling.

The compression garments work by compressing the underlying tissues and aiding in the contraction of lymphatic vessels, facilitating the movement of trapped fluid. They can also provide support to weakened or damaged lymph nodes, reducing the risk of further complications.

Apart from improving comfort, gradient compression garments also have additional benefits. They can help prevent the progression of lymphedema, alleviate pain and heaviness in the affected area, improve mobility, and reduce the risk of infection. Moreover, wearing these garments regularly can contribute to maintaining a stable limb size and preventing the need for more invasive treatments.

Gradient compression garments are an essential tool in managing lymphedema, as they provide support, promote lymph drainage, and enhance comfort. They play a crucial role in improving the quality of life for cancer patients and help maintain daily normal functionality.
