Post Surgical Manual Lymphatic Drainage Techniques – 14 CEUs LIVE – ORLANDO, FL

The body’s natural response after surgery includes an inflammatory response when the fluid nourishes the post operative area with white blood cells to start the healing process. Swelling is a normal result after surgery, and mobilizing excess fluid via the lymphatic system helps to facilitate the healing process. Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is the technique used to jump start the lymphatic system post operatively to remove excess fluid and metabolic waste from the tissues in the body to optimize healing and post-surgical results.

Learn MLD techniques that are often prescribed by plastic surgeons after brazilian buttock lift, liposuction, tummy tuck, mommy makeover, face lift, and breast augmentations to facilitate healing. Incorporate MLD into treatment plans after elective orthopedic surgeries like total knee and hip surgeries. Use MLD to help cancer patients recover after lymph node removal. Understand how to best incorporate MLD techniques into your practice as a physical therapist, occupational therapist or massage therapist to best lead your patients and clients on the road to recovery.

As a bonus, learn relaxation techniques to help your patients reduce post surgical pain. Integrating progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, visualization, and breathing techniques into your existing plan of care will help your patients reduce anxiety, anticipatory pain, fears associated with pain medical interventions, muscle guarding and compensatory strategies by allowing your patient to reach a state of relaxation for both the mind and the body. Adding this component into your sessions while performing manual lymphatic drainage therapies will set you apart from other therapists with this unique approach to reduce pain and swelling.
