Oedema therapy


Oedema is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the tissue as a consequence of a disturbed balance between supply and drainage of fluid.


Frequently occurring types of oedema are lymphatic oedema, venous oedema and lip oedema. Lymphatic oedema can occur after oncological surgery, such as in breast cancer, where the lymph nodes of the axilla have been removed, or after radiation. An oedema can also occur after a trauma.


Oedema therapy consists of information, manual lymph drainage, exercise therapy and the use of aids such as bandages, lymph-taping, cyclodrain and medical compression stockings.
