Compression Bandages

Compression bandages can help stabilize minor injuries, reduce inflammation and swelling, and ease discomfort. Doctors often recommend treating injuries such as bruises, strains, or sprains with the RICE approach — which stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Compression bandages and wraps can be useful tools to keep in your first aid kit.

There are a lot of options to choose from when shopping for compression bandages. Knowing what might best suit your needs can help you sort through them.

Type of Injury

Different types of bandages may work better for different injuries. A compression bandage for the knee needs to support walking, while one for an elbow may need to be more flexible. Talk to your healthcare provider or trainer to find out the best compression bandage for your specific injury.

Dimensions and Size

Compression bandages come in various widths and lengths. A wider bandage may not need to be wrapped as many times around an area to provide compression. A more narrow band could allow for increased flexibility and more versatility if you need to apply compression to a smaller body area.

Brand

Several manufacturers make compression bandages. If you prefer a certain brand, you can filter your search results to show products from that manufacturer.

Color

Traditional wrapping bandages used to be tan or white. Now consumers have a wide range of color choices, including bright wraps in neon hues so that you can showcase personality, support your favorite team, or choose other fun themes to wear. Of course, if you'd prefer to stick with neutral-colored bandaging, there are plenty of those to choose from.

Closure

Many compression bandages are self-adhesive, so you don't need any additional supplies to apply them and have them stay on. Some feature an adhesive that sticks on one side of the compression wrap. Others may have hook-and-loop closures to stay secure, and some varieties come with pin closures. Which is best for you may just be a matter of preference, and ease of use. People with arthritis, for example, may prefer self-adhesive bandages because they are easier to manage.

Breathability

Some tapes allow the skin to "breathe" a little more easily than others do. This can be important if you need to wear the athletic tape for long stretches, have sensitive skin, or look for a product that allows moisture to get through.

Latex vs. Non-Latex

Some compression bandages and sleeves contain latex, which helps make them stretch. However, if you are allergic to latex, look closely at the label before buying to make sure you get a latex-free product.

Cost

Most compression bandages are relatively inexpensive, starting at just a couple of dollars. If you're on a budget, you may reach for the lower-priced products first. But keep in mind, more expensive compression wraps often involve stronger materials or provide other upgrades.
