Manual Lympathatic Drainage therapy (MLD) by Tammy Peat
Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapy or MLD for short is the A class treatment for the following situations:
- Lymphoedema as a secondary condition as a result of cancer operations where nodes are often removed or compromised.
- Other secondary situations where Lymphoedema can arise are vein stripping, after traumatic Orthopaedic surgery operations and situations where lymph nodes have been damaged and or sacrificed
- Lymphoedema as a primary due to a faulty lymphatic system, eg damaged vessels , too few vessels , inadequate nodes etc...... a condition which can arise from birth, during adolescence or later in life.
- Venous oedema.
- Pre and post cosmetic surgery such as liposurgery , vaser liposuction to drain and reduce bruising much more quickly and promote healing .
MLD is a very light touch therapy where the skin is worked on in a rhymical and monotonous way, to get the superficial lymph vessels which lie very close to the skin to create lymphatic flow which has an effect on the deeper vessels thus creating drainage in an area where there is oedema (swelling ) and fibrotic tissue ( hard tissue ) .
The therapist drains the area to the next viable nodes in order to reduce swelling and pain .
MLD is a non painful and very relaxing treatment which works hand in hand with compression (we generally need to use compression bandages or use compression garments which are individual tailored )
Deep oscillation via the Hivamat equipment (distributed by Physiopod) is often used with the MLD technique by sending an electrostatic current into the area to break down and disperse the swelling more quickly.
Most patients need several treatments close together and over a certain amount of weeks.
Patients are taught to do some self massage techniques as well as breathing techniques and exercises to further what Is achieved in an MLD/CDT treatment. The aim of this is empower patients to take care of their limb/s and educate them on how to self manage their condition as much as possible in order to lead as normal a life as possible
