In an effort to keep our patients informed on many levels, we post articles we feel may be interesting or informative to you. Doing your own internet search is not always a good idea; many things you read on the internet are unfounded, confusing or just not true. Below are some articles we found helpful, and they have solid resources.

Bandaging Videos

CHPT has made the following videos available for our patients. They are a guide to assist you in bandaging at home, after your therapist has instructed you on bandaging during your treatment. Each individual case is different, and the bandaging method depicted in the videos is not meant for everyone; it is very basic. Your therapist will show you specific bandaging requirements for you. Improper or incorrect bandaging can result in worsening edema. Please consult your therapist before trying any of these at home.
