MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE THERAPY

pre & post-surgery CARE

 

MLD reduces your recovery time

Pain, scarring and short-term mobility challenges occur with most surgeries. You want to heal quickly, keep scarring to a minimum and get back in action as soon as possible. 


Used before an operation, MLD treatments help 'prime' the area by encouraging optimal lymphatic system function. After surgery, MLD treats acute pain and swelling  - and significantly reduces the look and feel of scars.


What kinds of surgery?

  • Oncology - Specifically cancer surgery where lymph nodes have been removed as part of the treatment 
  • Maxillofacial -  Jaw and face-related corrective surgeries
  • Orthopedic -  Typically ankle, knee, hip, wrist, shoulder and elbow repair or replacement
  • Plastic - Both trauma repair and cosmetic procedures


What you should know:

  • 1 to 3 MLD therapy sessions before surgery is helpful
  • After surgery, we can come to you in-hospital or at home when needed

Reduce your scarring and swelling and get moving again
