Lymphoedema

 

Lymphedoema is the accumulation of fluid causing swelling – typically in the arms, legs, hands and feet. This can be due to failure of the lymphatic system, which can happen with:

  • damage resulting from cancer or cancer treatments
  • tissue trauma
  • heart or vascular disease
  • immobility

Qualified physiotherapists with training in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) can help to reduce this swelling and prevent it from reoccurring by:

  • lymphatic massage
  • compression therapy (garments/stockings)
  • bandaging
  • exercises
  • education
  • taping
