Bandaging treatment is very common in nature and is widely practised by general physicians across the globe to treat all kinds of wounds or bodily injuries. A bandage is typically a medicated strip of material or gauze that is either directly applied on to a wound along with a dressing or is used to treat swelling and provide support to splints and sprained ankles or to confine the movement of any part of the body that has been injured. This form of treatment is available in a variety of types. There are gauze bandages, compression bandages, triangular bandages and tube bandages. Depending on the situation to be treated, your general physician is the best person to decide the type of treatment that'll best work for your nature of injury. While gauze bandaging treatment is usually used in all kinds of wounds or cuts to hold the dressing in its place, leg compression bandages or elastic bandages are good for treating venous ulcers in the leg. Triangular bandages, also known as cravat bandages, are a piece of cloth that is shaped into a right-angled triangle and are used as slings or for specialized applications on the head. Finally, a tube bandage is the one that is woven in a circular shape to hold dressings or splints on to limbs, or to provide support to sprains and strains, so that it stops bleeding. This particular bandaging treatment is applied onto the affected area using an applicator.
