5 Things NOT to do When Choosing a Compression Sleeve

You know you have to wear a compression sleeve to manage your lymphedema but you’re not quite sure where to start. If you visit your local durable medical store and next to the oxygen mask, you see a dusty, beige and scratchy sleeve. The store assistant sizes you up visually to be a medium and send you on your way. Do not go home with this sleeve. The only way a compression sleeve can work to improve or prevent lymphedema is if it is precisely matched to your needs including size, length, compression and most importantly comfort & appearance. We always say; a compression sleeve cannot improve your lymphedema by sitting in a drawer!
