Decongestive and Compression Therapy
Lymphoedema Care: Combined Decongestive Therapy and Compression Therapy
MLD is not only an effective part of total lymphoedema management but is also an excellent treatment for general health care and may help to reduce the risk of the development of secondary lymphoedema. The ultimate aim of this management regime is to bring the body back to as stable and normal a situation as possible.
This approach to the management of lymphoedema consists of:
- Manual Lymph Drainage
- Skin Care
There are two phases to the treatment plan for existing or long-term lymphoedema:
Intensive Treatment Phase
Frequent MLD sessions with bandaging.
Exercise and skin care to be practised at home.
Wearing compression garments prescribed.
Continuing exercise program and skin care
MLD sessions as required
