Dr. McSweeney has a holistic, multi-technique approach to chiropractic care here at her Reno practice. It’s the best way to give her patients the personalized care they deserve. Now, we’re excited to announce the addition of compression therapy, a highly effective treatment for the pain and swelling associated with poor circulation. Here’s how that will benefit Dr. McSweeney’s patients.
BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION THERAPY
A number of conditions are associated with poor circulation, including varicose veins and edema. Pain and swelling in the legs, ankles, and feet is an unhappy side effect. But compression therapy can help.
This type of therapy improves blood flow in the legs, which can help:
- heal ulcers and wounds created by pooling blood
- manage conditions such as orthostatic hypotension and chronic venous insufficiency
- prevent deep vein thrombosis
By providing compression to the legs, ankles, and feet, compression therapy keeps fluid from building up and creating pain and swelling. At-home compression therapy often involves compression stockings, bandages, or wraps. Inflatable devices provide pressure to deliver the same benefits, and that’s what we’ve added here at Dr. McSweeney’s office. Our compression therapy boots add a precise amount of compression to the legs by pushing air through the leg sleeves, squeezing the leg muscles and feet in sections on timed cycles.
This system supports lymphatic drainage and circulation to speed recovery and relieve swelling.
