Edema

Swelling in various parts of the body, from injury or inflammation, including veins, arms and legs. A build-up of fluid in the tissue is known as oedema. Unfortunately, oedema can go undetected for quite a while before there is an onset of pain. But, the progression of oedema can effectively be slowed down through the help of compression and therapy at early stages! Equip yourself with the knowledge on how to recognise oedema earlier, and how to manage it in different parts of the body.
