Thank you for choosing Tri-State Nursing & Rehabilitation for your Lymphedema treatment and management.

Steps in Lymphedema Management

  1. Manual Lymphatic Drainage:
    This consists of slow, circular movements that stretches the skin and stimulates lymph nodes and vessels. The rhythmic movements will increase venous return and re-route lymph flow.
  2. Compression Therapy:
    Following manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), stretch bandages and compression garments are used for external support due to the decreased elasticity.
  3. Decongestive Exercises:
    These supervised programs activate muscles and joints; these exercises strengthen muscles and circulation for the lymphatic system.
