When pain and inflammation occur after an injury, a tubular support bandage is often needed. The use of a tubular support bandage can be an effective treatment for various injuries. The Medicare Sport Tubular Support provides effective treatment for soft tissue injuries, sprains, strains and sports injuries. It also provides support for weak, tender joints. A Tubular bandage is often used as a bottom layer when applying plaster casts or removable splints to keep the swelling reduced. The use of compression reduces swelling, either from getting there in the first place or by disseminating the fluids already there.Sport Tubular Support Bandages are lengths of close weave stretchy cotton used to support different limbs. The widths are for different limb sizes and tubular bandages come in either 1m or 10m lengths. The dimensions used are the flat width of the tubular bandage when lying on a flat surface. A Tubular bandage should be applied as a double layer, to ensure best support.
