Thank you for choosing Tri-State Nursing & Rehabilitation for your Lymphedema treatment and management.
Steps in Lymphedema Management
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage:
This consists of slow, circular movements that stretch the skin and stimulates lymph nodes and vessels. The rhythmic movements will increase venous return and re-route lymph flow.
- Compression Therapy:
Following manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), stretch bandages and compression garments are used for external support due to the decreased elasticity.
- Decongestive Exercises:
These supervised programs activate muscles and joints; these exercises strengthen muscles and circulation for the lymphatic system.
