Manual Lymphatic Drainage

 
 

Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique that encourages lymph to drain from a limb typically into an area that drains properly. This massage technique is mainly used for lymphoedema (fluid retention and tissue swelling). It can be helpful with injured joints that have accompanying swelling, pre- and post-surgically, and with chronic swelling in an extremity.
