At PhysioFit, we use various specialized techniques to address lymphedema effectively. These include:
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD): Our therapists perform MLD, a gentle massage technique that encourages lymphatic fluid flow, reducing swelling, and promoting healing.
- Compression Therapy: We employ various compression techniques, such as bandaging and using compression garments, to support the affected area and facilitate lymphatic drainage.
- Exercise and Movement Therapy: Our team designs specific exercises and movement programs to improve circulation, strengthen muscles, and enhance overall lymphatic function.
