Lymphatic drainage MLD

Manual lymphatic drainage is designed to treat swollen body areas. Oedemata are swellings resulting from the accumulation of fluid in the tissue. The method aims at decongesting the tissues and maintaining this state afterwards. Various gentle manual techniques cause the fluid to return to the vascular system – as a result, the swellings abate faster.

Compression therapy  is the mainstay in the treatment of lymphoedemas. It is essential for manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), which otherwise would not take an enduring effect. Furthermore, compression forms the most important part of complex physical decongestion therapy. Tradition has it that compression bandages were used for wound care and the treatment of oedemata early in human history. It is a long-acting, effective method to enhance the patient’s quality of living.
