Many injuries are treated with RICE: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. RICE helps reduce inflammation and swelling. Some of these solutions are obvious. But compression warrants a closer look. Compression works by helping the circulatory system do its job. The circulatory system consists of veins, which carry oxygen-poor blood from the body’s tissues to the heart and lungs; and arteries, which recirculate oxygen-refreshed blood. With each heartbeat, blood circulates quickly throughout the body. This infographic from LymphedemaProducts.com looks at the science behind compression garments.
