If you have difficulty, you may benefit from a full evaluation. Falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults.Learn More

Manual Lymphatic Drainage or MLD is a gentle technique used to increase the movement of lymph and interstitial fluid by stimulating the lymph node drainage areas and re-directing the fluid around blocked areas.
Reasons we use short-stretch compression bandages include increase in tissue pressure, prevention of the re-accumulation of fluid and improvement of the effectiveness of muscle and joint pumps.
Decongestive Exercises are also issued to the patient in order to increase lymph drainage.
Education of Lymphedema is imperative to decrease opportunity for infection.
Patients with Lymphedema will graduate from Compression Bandages to Compression Garments once the limb has been decongested. This step is vital in preserving the treatment success that was achieved through the MLD, bandaging, exercise and education.
Lymphedema cannot be cured; however, it can be successfully treated and managed so one can live a happier, healthier, more independent life.
Top 10 Rehab Concepts
The physical therapists at PT Plus agree on a general philosophy or approach to treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.
- Always evaluate the whole person/body.
- Focus on areas of concern for each person.
- Rehabilitation consists of the application of the right treatment at the right time followed by the right exercise… and time.
- During rehabilitation all procedures and modalities must be based on anatomy, physiology and scientific principles.
- In the later stages of rehabilitation, exercise and time are primary components of the rehabilitative process.
- The focus of rehabilitation is on functional goals and outcomes for our patients.
- Rehab is not linear. Progress does not occur in a straight line but a series of ups, downs and plateaus. Sometimes this process needs to be measured in weeks or months, not days.
- If progress is slower than expected, other directions in treatment must be taken to resolve or identify the problems that may be impeding the healing or rehabilitation process.
- Regardless of the outcomes, each person’s concerns must be heard, addressed and attempts made to solve problems.
- Most people have a physician and dentist on their healthcare team. Everyone should also have a physical therapist who knows you and whom you can trust. We hope you choose a physical therapist from PT Plus as one of your health care providers!
