Crepe bandages are used for minor injuries such as strains and sprains.
Crepe bandages aid in the compression stage. Securing a crepe bandage around the injured area will help prevent further swelling and restrict the movement of the injured area. Often, a wrong movement or twist could result in further strain on the muscle or tendon and increase complications. A Crepe bandage holds the area in place by providing support and also protecting it. It is important that you remove the crepe bandage before going to bed.
