In brief: Swelling

Coflex is a cohesive bandage.
When you sprain your ankle and depending upon de degree of the sprainn will be swellling(edema)., the coflex by being cohesive help to control and decrease the swelling, however you should use others modalities to control swelling such as icing and iinmobilisation.
