The Reynolds Swell Spot is used to treat swelling in the head and neck. The foam swell spot is attached to the strap with velcro, so it can easily be moved and adjusted to specifically target swelling. Based on Jodi Reynolds, PT experience, she has had 100% compliance and excellent results when compared to balaclava style (full head/neck) compression.
Pad Size: approx 16.5 cm x 7.5 cm
How do Swell Spots work? Swell Spots' are made with unique foam particles that nestle into tissue to create localized tissue stretch. This tissue stretch opens initial lymphatic gaps to encourage re-absorption of fluids and particles. Basically, this means Swell Spots help break up fibrosis and move fluid where it needs to go!
Two different fabrics. Most of Swell Spots use both a grey and black colored fabric, each with its own unique purpose. The grey fabric is specifically designed to be used against your skin in order to provide a gentle grip, keeping your Swell Spot in place and helping to create the localized tissue stretch necessary to move fluid and break up fibrosis.
To wash your Swell Spots, just toss them in your washing machine with a normal load of laundry and machine dry (remember, do not use bleach or fabric softeners in the washing and drying process).
