Lymphatic Drainage Therapy in South West Edmonton
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE THERAPY
Lymphedema is the excessive buildup of lymph fluid that causes swelling around the upper or lower extremities (arms or legs). However, it can also occur in the chest, abdomen, or face. This condition usually disrupts or blocks the lymphatic system due to infections, surgery, radiation, cancer, and in rare cases, genetics.
At Momentum Spine and Sports Physiotherapy Clinic, we have massage therapists who are well-trained and experienced in lymphatic drainage techniques. If you are experiencing this condition, we have a long-lasting solution to your problem. Contact us today to book an appointment with one of our specialists.
How does lymphatic drainage work?
Lymphatic drainage is a treatment recommended for patients suffering from lymphedema. When a patient comes for this special manual therapy, a specialist will apply a gentle massage using both hands-on affected areas of the body and adjacent areas.
Lymphatic drainage works by relocating lymph fluid from affected parts of the lymphatic system to perfectly functioning parts. Once this is achieved, the fluid can flow freely throughout the circulatory system.
