Lymphoedema Management Toowoomba

Lymphoedema Management for Improved Lifestyle

Lymphoedema (lymphedema) is a painful and debilitating condition resulting in swelling of hands, feet or limbs from a build up of fluid that would normally be drained by the lymphatic system.  Relief is possible though with a proper Lymphoedema Management plan.

Lymphoedema Management ToowoombaLymphoedema does not respond to either drugs or surgery and as a result many doctors are simply not equipped to advise on the treatments available. 

Lymphoedema often appears after chemotherapy treatments as a result of damage to the lymphatic system.  It can also appear after hormonal changes including puberty and menopause.

It is not unusual for Lymphoedema to be confused with obesity and inappropriate treatments such as liposuction may be sought by patients desperate for relief.  Unfortunately liposuction and "dieting" have no beneficial impacts on the condition.  Note that by "dieting" we refer to weight loss diets.  A healthy, balanced diet is always advised for better health outcomes.  Lymphatic massage, sometimes combined with compression bandages or stockings is the only treatment that provides relief for this chronic condition.

The most successful Lymphoedema management plan starts with Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (MLDT).  This is a form of massage therapy where the excess fluid is drained from the effected limbs be replicating the function of the lymph nodes.  Properly performed by a trained therapist, this treatment is gentle and not painfull. 

Lyn from Edals Natural Therapies Toowoomba is trained in MLDT and is certified to practice by the Lymphoedema Academy of Australia.  She can advise on the most appropriate Lymphoedema Management tecniques and treatments, including the suitability of compression bandages. 

Lymphoedema is not a pleasant condition and the impact of the disease is often exascerbated by improper diagnosis and treatment by the medical profession.  It is a chronic disease but does not have mean the end of an enjoyable lifestyle.  Lyn understands what you are going through and can bring some light to the end of the tunnel you are in.  Lymphoedema Management is more than a one off treatment and Lyn is ready to work with you and provide support through this journey.

Testimonial:

"Lynn is fantastic and her experience in health sets her apart. During physio rehab for a dislocated shoulder and fracture thanks to massage therapy my range of movement was returned in a matter of months rather than 18 months-2 years."  - Lenora
