Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is used to stimulate the flow of lymph in the body. For this purpose, our physical therapists use special grip techniques such as scoop grips, twist grips, pump grips, standing circles and other gentle movements and finally cause excess fluid to be transported from the periphery towards the heart.
Manual Lymph Drainage is therefore a special medical massage, which is used especially in the case of swelling, injuries or diseases. It can be prescribed by your doctor and is often found as a charging item on your prescription. MLD requires an additional qualification and is therefore only performed by specially trained physical therapists.
The complex physical decongestive therapy includes the prevention and treatment of various edemas (lymphedema, phlebedema, orthostatic edema, congestive edema, artificial edema, diuretic-induced edema) and also takes place after injuries (for example sports injuries such as supination trauma) and after operations to support the healing process.
