Treatments

Air compression treatments

They’re devices that use pressure on the lower limbs to boost blood circulation and keep lymph flowing through the body. Consistent blood flow aids in the relaxation of muscles, which is particularly useful for people who suffer from mobility issues or recovering from other medical conditions. The machine helps the lymph flow, drains the toxins and metabolic wastes from the body, therefore reducing the risks of developing chronic diseases.

Air Compression Limbs

Stimulation Tens Machine

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph. Fluid that is forced out of the bloodstream during normal circulation is filtered through lymph nodes to remove bacteria, abnormal cells and other matter. The procedure of the Tens Machine is a electrical nerve stimulation and cell stimulation, improves the circulation of body fluids

Lymphatic Drainage 

Is a gentle, rhythmical massage treatment performed by a specially trained lympheodema practitioner to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body. This helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system.

Doppler Assessment

Doppler Assessment

A Doppler ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins, usually those that supply blood to your arms and legs. This can help to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including blood clots and poor circulation. This assessment will assist with decision on compression therapy.

Compression Bandaging

Compression Bandaging is a treatment that increases pressure of lower limbs, assisting the built up of fluid to flow back up to the main lymph node area. This then reduces swelling and improves skin integrity. Compression therapy is frequently advised on clients that are diagnosed with Stages One, Two and Three of Lympheodema. There are 2 types of compression bandaging. Profore (4 layers) and Coban (2 layers) These are determined after assessment of a doppler to check Arterial flow.

Compression Bandaging

Compression Garments

Are pieces of clothing that fit tightly around the skin. In medical contexts, compression garments provide support for people who have to stand for long periods, have poor circulation, or suffer with Oedema. The pressure these stockings put on your legs helps your blood vessels and lymphatic system to work better. These are implemented during Stage 1 of Oedema and maintenance stage of treatment.

Pregnancy Oedema

Oedema (or swelling) in the hands, feet and ankles is very common (especially during the heat of summer). Puffiness in the face and neck can also occur—especially after the 20th week. Changes in blood chemistry cause some fluid to shift into your tissues, and by the third trimester, the weight of your uterus puts so much pressure on your pelvic veins and the vena cava (the large vein on the right side of your body that carries blood from your legs and feet back up to your heart), that blood can pool, forcing fluid retention below the knees. Lymphatic Drainage Massage would be beneficial.
