LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

LYMPHEDEMA

Lymphedema is a special type of edema caused by reduced transport capacity in the lymphatic system. For some reason, lymphatic vessels are blocked (secondary lymphoedema) or there are too few lymphatic vessels (primary lymphoedema). Due to this reduced transport capacity, lymph fluid will seep into the tissue and cause swelling, particularly in the arms and/or legs.

 

Primary lymphoedema is a chronic condition with no known underlying cause, while secondary lymphoedema is due to disease/injury. We treat lymphedema and offer, among other things, lymphatic drainage, taping, fitting of stockings etc
