Lymphedema is a condition where there is an accumulation of fluid in the interstitial tissues of the body. Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a specialized massage technique performed to stimulate the flow of lymph from an affected area. MLD is performed by a certified and licensed therapist.
Lift Therapy offers MLD services to effectively treat patients with lymphedema and other swelling disorders.
The main goal of our MLD program is to return the patient to his/her normal lifestyle. There is no cure for lymphedema but we strive to assist and teach patients how to successfully manage their symptoms and prevent future complications. We strive for maximal edema reductions to normal or near-normal limb volume, followed by fitting the patient with appropriate compression garment or device.
