Lymphatic Drainage

Jeanne Ledden
I cannot thank Dr. Monica Scott and associate, Suzanne, enough for the care I received at Doctor Physical Therapy. The therapy and manual massage techniques personalized to my needs of having Lymphedema in both legs and right arm, bone-on-bone arthritis in both knees, bowed left leg and the right leg larger that the left.  Dr. Monica showed me a better way to wrap my legs to get the best benefits out of my Ready Wraps to get them to stay on and the compression they are designed to help with having Lymphedema.  Not only has Dr. Monica helped me to feel better health-wise, but more confident about myself having multiple problems.  The friendly atmosphere at Doctor Physical Therapy makes you feel at home.

Our comprehensive Lymphedema treatments include:

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) – a gentle, hands-on massage of both the affected body part and adjacent selected areas. MLD can move lymph fluid from the swollen region into parts of the lymphatic system that are still functioning. From there, the fluid is transported throughout the circulatory system.
  • Compression Bandaging —After MLD, the treated area is wrapped with layers of compression bandages. Bandages help prevent the re-accumulation of lymphatic fluid.
  • Therapeutic Exercise — Medically supervised exercise programs are designed to strengthen muscles and improve the circulation and function of the lymph system.
  • Personalized Education in Self-Care — Our Lymphedema therapy specialists will teach you how to maintain your treatment progress through at-home techniques, including self-bandaging, self-massage, exercise, skin and nail care.
