Healing with Compression Therapy

compression therapy promotes healing foot woundsWhen damaged, the body naturally reacts by rushing oxygen-rich blood to the affected area to help it heal. One of the difficulties in managing non-healing wounds and ulcers is that the condition is amplified by restricted blood flow to the tissue. Inadequate blood flow deprives your wound of what it needs to heal.
