lymph LH2



Lymphedema management includes: Manual Lymph Drainage, compression, skin care, exercise, and education. While LM is an effective treatment for cancer related swelling and vascular insufficiency, it can impact other pathologies by enhancing the healing process and returning patient to prior level of function.


Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a potent way to activate the lymphatic system with few contraindications.  Therefore, MLD can be included in treatment for several pathologies such as:

• Post Traumatic Edema (sprain/strain to a ligament)

• Post-Surgical Edema (facelift, liposuction, breast reduction, joint replacement)

• Whiplash

• Hematoma

• Fibromyalgia

• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

• Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

• Migraine and Sinus Headache

• Other Neurological/autoimmune diseases


Although there are specific goals when applying MLD depending on the pathology, some general objectives remain the focus:

• Decrease hypersensitivity and reduce pain

• Decrease tissue congestion and inflammation

• Reduce swelling

• General detoxification of tissues

• Promote normal range of motion
