I recently used an Ace bandage with EZ clips to wrap a mysteriously injured ankle . I didn’t know what I had kicked, but my heavy grocery-laden rolling backpack was my best guess. My excellent doctor guessed it was a sprain. He prescribed ice, rest, elevation and compression. Enter the handy Ace bandage. I wrapped it

Compression bandages are made with a stretchy elastic fabric and actively apply pressure to healing areas and can be a large part of care routines depending on patient needs. The general purpose of any bandage is to support and protect a body area, allowing it to heal more efficiently.
Some elastic bandages even use Velcro closures to secure and stabilize the wrap in place. Aside from use in sports medicine and by orthopedists, elastic bandages are popular in the treatment of lymphedema and other venous conditions. However, ACE compression wraps are inadequate for the treatment of lymphedema
Elastic bandages (also known as compression bandages) are often used for the compression part of RICE—rest, ice, compression and elevation—the gold standard of first aid treatment for bruises and sprains. Probably the most common brand name for an elastic bandage is an Ace wrap.
