What is compression therapy?

Take an optimal approach to your surgical procedure.

Compression therapy enhances blood flow using specially designed garments. It’s particularly effective for people who want to speed up their recovery from injuries and surgeries, as well as those with chronic conditions that cause swelling in their limbs. Compression stockings are often used during recovery periods because they prevent venous stasis (the pooling of blood in your legs) by increasing circulation and reducing inflammation. They can also help alleviate symptoms associated with venous insufficiency, including fatigue, swelling, pain, and heaviness. Hydrology Wellness offers Ballancer Pro in Miami to help you achieve the benefits of compression therapy throughout your entire body. For plastic surgery patients, this advanced therapy can help you enjoy an easier recovery no matter what area of your body has undergone surgery.

Compression therapy benefits

How can it help you before and after surgery?

Compression therapy is an effective way to decrease inflammation, pain, and muscle spasms. In addition to increasing blood flow, compression therapy reduces a patient’s perceived level of pain by alleviating stress on skeletal muscles. To reduce swelling before or after plastic surgery in Miami, consult with one of our skilled and experienced medical professionals at our Miami Wellness Center, Hydrology Wellness. Compression therapy is an excellent option for plastic surgery patients. Increased blood flow before and after surgery can greatly contribute to optimal preparation and recovery by reducing the risk of blood clots and decreasing swelling and inflammation.

Am I a candidate for compression therapy?

For pre and post-op patients

If you have any upcoming surgeries or frequent injuries that require recovery time, compression therapy might be something you should consider. It’s an effective way to increase your blood flow before and after these types of events—and it can help reduce swelling, too. Compression therapy is often used by athletes as well as people who are bedridden or have limited mobility. It’s especially useful for those with circulatory issues like varicose veins, leg swelling from sitting too long, and other conditions related to poor circulation.

The Science Behind Hydrology's Compression Therapy:

Compression Therapy: Is it Right for You?


Compression therapy constitutes a medical intervention utilizing pressure to enhance and bolster circulation within the veins. It is frequently applied in the treatment of various conditions, including venous disorders, lymphedema, and specific forms of edema, particularly in the postoperative phase. The fundamental objectives of compression therapy encompass the mitigation of swelling, the facilitation of blood flow, and the prevention of blood clotting in the targeted area. This article aims to offer guidance to individuals considering the suitability of compression therapy tailored to their distinct needs and circumstances.


  1. Improvement of Blood Circulation

Compression therapy contributes to the improvement of blood circulation through the application of pressure to the limbs, with a particular focus on the legs. This is vital for individuals dealing with conditions like chronic venous insufficiency or varicose veins, where compromised blood circulation is a concern.


A study conducted by Oduncu and colleagues (2004) demonstrated how in order to treat leg ulcers, compression therapy is the main approach. When managing the wound and deciding on compression, it's important to consider if leg vein issues are due to problems in deep, superficial, or perforating veins. To better understand how well compression works, it's helpful to measure blood flow in the legs.

Right now, there isn't one perfect way to measure blood flow. Each method has its pros and cons. Many studies on blood flow in compressed limbs have shown different results because of how the research is done. Ideally, we'd have a system that can measure blood flow in the whole leg and check the pressure of the compression bandage while the person is walking. This would give us more useful information.

  1. Prevention of Blood Clotting

Compression therapy, particularly in the form of compression stockings, can be used to prevent the formation of blood clots, especially in individuals at risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The pressure exerted by the compression garments aids in maintaining blood flow and preventing stagnation.


A study conducted by Appelen and colleagues (2017) states that there is some evidence, though not very strong, that wearing elastic compression stockings can reduce the chance of getting post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) after having deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The studies found that people generally wore the stockings well, and there weren't any serious problems reported.

Thigh-length stockings don't seem to be better than knee-length for preventing PTS or another DVT. Wearing these stockings might not significantly improve your quality of life, except in the first nine days after DVT. If you're thinking about how long to wear them, one study suggests that wearing the stockings for two years might be better than just one year in terms of preventing PTS.


In summary, compression therapy stands out as a valuable medical approach to enhance circulation, especially in addressing conditions like venous disorders, lymphedema, and postoperative swelling. Its proven benefits, encompassing diminished edema, enhanced blood circulation, and the prevention of blood clotting, underscore its importance in diverse healthcare settings. Opting for compression therapy should be a well-informed decision based on careful consideration of individual needs, guided by consultation with healthcare professionals to ensure both suitability and effective management of specific health conditions.
