Lymphatic Drainage as a Treatment to Reduce Post-Operative Swelling
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a manual technique that resembles a massage. However, it is different because the touch is performed with focused attention and precision to pressure. The speed and direction of lymphatic drainage will encourage lymphatic flow and swelling reduction. Treatments are typically 60-minute appointments, 2-3 times a week for a minimum of 4 weeks. Compression is imperative to maintain the results of the decreased swelling between sessions. This may include bandaging or graduated compression socks, however, compression is individualized and independently evaluated based on goals and personal needs.
