Compression Therapy Benefits for Medical Conditions, Athletes

Compression therapy is a centuries-old tool beneficial for vascular system wellbeing, as well as an adjunct treatment or preventative measure for specific medical conditions such as varicose veins, blood clots, ulcers, and even migraines.

New treatment applications for compression therapy are routinely being discovered, such as compression therapy for cancer-related lymphedema. The benefits of compression therapy extend beyond those grappling with medical conditions, and athletes in particular are taking notice. Compression therapy is gaining popularity with people who live an active lifestyle for its ability to improve athletic performance and reduce soreness after exercise.

The proven, beneficial impact of compression therapy on whole health and wellbeing makes it ideal for a wide range of wellness journeys.

How Compression Therapy Works:

Compression therapy works by applying gentle pressure to the leg through the use of specially designed bandages, boots, stockings, or socks. The gentle squeezing of the leg helps blood flow more easily and in the correct direction.

Improved circulation ensures that blood and oxygen continuously flow throughout the body—allowing every organ to function properly.

What to Expect During Compression Therapy:

At Nova Vita, the patient experience remains our top priority. We use the latest compression therapy technology available to allow for optimal results and a comfortable process.

The entire treatment lasts 30 minutes, during which you will be seated in a personal recliner of your choosing and enjoy a complimentary hydration beverage. During the therapy, you may read a book, listen to music, or relax with your eyes closed as your feel the blood rush through your veins.

Compression Therapy Treatment Applications:

  • Blood clots (Prevention)
  • Ulcers
  • Venous disorders
  • Lipedema
  • Migraines
  • Lymphedema
  • Thrombosis

Compression therapy has many benefits as a standalone treatment and some people find it provides all of the relief they need.

Nova Vita recognizes that not everyone is the same and depending on your personal wellness journey and specific goals additional treatments may boost your progress.
