Taping: ½ hour or part of an Oedema treatment

Taping can be very helpful in the early recovery stages of surgical procedures to assist with scar tissue healing and the redirection of lymph to other node locations where appropriate. Taping is also very good for heavy bruising and fibrosis as well as posture correction and injury prevention particularly before sporting events. Where taping is therapeutic it should remain on until it falls off or comes off easily which is likely to be 3 to 5 days depending on the location. Normally taping can be carried out as part of an Oedema treatment, however if a large amount of taping is required or an oedema treatment is not required, or learning to tape for your condition at home, then taping can be carried out as a separate ½ hour treatment. Mandurah Oedema Clinic uses Fysiotape because of its quality and it is TGA registered. We use CureTape for Lymphatic Drainage, scar management and fibrosis, Kinesiology tape for structural and sporting needs and Crosslinq tape for pain management.

Compression Bandaging: ½ hour or part of an Oedema treatment

Bandaging can be very helpful in the later stages of Oedema and particularly good for a series of intensive treatments. This is due to the fact that compression garments or sleeves can quickly become ineffective if the oedema is reducing. In addition bandaging will conform to the wearers shape and can be utilised until compression garments can be measured for or obtained. Compression bandaging is a 4 layered system which protects the skin, assists with drainage, retains the bandaging and then applies compression. As for taping, bandaging can be carried out as part of an Oedema treatment, however if a large amount of bandaging is required or an oedema treatment is not required, or learning to bandage for your condition at home, then bandaging can be carried out as a separate ½ hour treatment. Mandurah Oedema Clinic uses the Mobiderm bandaging system and recommends the Mobiderm compression garments.
