Compression therapy, specifically air pressure therapy, is a highly effective method for various medical conditions. By utilizing a multi-chamber system to inflate and deflate air, this therapy applies pressure to the tissues and limbs, leading to improved blood flow, lymphatic drainage, microcirculation, and the return of tissue fluid.
So, who can benefit from air pressure therapy?
This therapy is particularly useful for individuals with upper and lower extremity edema. The treatment principle revolves around enhancing blood and lymphatic circulation, thereby reducing edema and alleviating discomfort caused by metabolites and pain-inducing substances.
Patients who spend extended periods lying on their backs are at higher risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the lower extremities. DVT can lead to life-threatening pulmonary embolism, as well as leg swelling, ulcers, and pigmentation. Air pressure therapy plays a crucial role in preventing such complications by applying cyclic pressure and providing relief to the body. This process induces muscle contractions, promotes venous fluid and blood circulation, and acts as a form of massage, effectively preventing the development of DVT.
Suitable candidates for air pressure therapy also include individuals with poor blood circulation in the legs. By employing intermittent pressure through the expansion and contraction of air waves, this therapy enhances blood circulation, increases skin surface temperature, activates and dilates blood vessels, and helps prevent thrombosis.
Additionally, air pressure therapy is beneficial for the elderly population. It promotes blood circulation, relieves muscle fatigue, eases pain, and can be employed for paralysis, rehabilitation, and muscle pain relief.
However, there are certain situations where air pressure therapy is not recommended:
- Severe, uncontrolled limb infections.
- Recent deep vein thrombosis in the lower limbs.
- Large ulcerative rash.
- Individuals with a tendency to bleed.
