We aim to create awareness and understanding about Lymphedema in the forms of treatment and educating  our clients for its over all prevention. Lymphedema is a lymphatic obstruction which causes localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system. Lymphedema treatment for a majority  of patients can be achieved by the skillful application of Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) which is SAFE, RELIABLE, and NON-INVASIVE.
During an intensive, also know as active treatment, bandages may be worn 23 hours a day for 7 days a week throughout this phase of treatment. After the Intensive treatment, many patients are able to replace bandages with other forms of day and night compression garments. These signs can be permanent, or present each evening evolve seasonally, for a few months and then stop. The hyper-venous pressure caused by varicose veins causes swelling of the legs at the end of the day, and favors the appearance of edema (fluid outside the blood vessels) which is associated with a feeling of heaviness. In some cases, itching or cramps occur during the night.
Cyclical edema predominantly female, very common, harmless, but they are accompanied by a feeling of heavy and tired legs. Cyclical edema concern the face, especially the eyelids in the morning and move to the lower parts of the body at the end of the day (ankle, calf, abdomen, breasts sometimes).
They occur mostly in the 10 days preceding rules and are related to an imbalance between the two female cycle hormones: estrogen and progesterone. Treatment is related to the etiology of heavy legs, venous, arterial, lymphatic and neurological.
If heavy legs are associated with the presence of varices or if there is chronic venous insufficiency, the first thing to do is charge  venous disease. Sometimes sclerosis treatment (injection into the vein of a product that will ossify and thus destroy the varix can be effective on a local pain.

Lymphedema : When there is excess of fluid accumulation in the lymph vessels it may cause swelling.
Finally, it can be due to side effects of any drugs of calcium channel blockers and antidepressant medicines. Apart from swelling in the ankles or legs, there may be moderate to severe pain while walking or moving the legs.
You can keep your legs in the elevated position (above the heart) for facilitating easy blood flow. In case of minor foot injury and sprain, you can use ice packs or wrap the foot with compressions.
Your doctor will first identify the underlying cause of swelling in the feet before giving treatment. Doing exercise and physiotherapy can help the person to overcome various causes of swelling. The strokes applied in MLD are intended to stimulate the movement of the lymphatic fluids in order to assist the body in cleansing. During this stage the therapist places the bandages and teaches the patient how to perform self-bandaging.
Making sure that the patient is independent and compliant makes a big difference to the treatment protocol and outcome. Often, there is a clear link between the legs and varicose veins. But sometimes heavy legs can be isolated without obvious link with a circulatory problem. This happens when there is inadequate supply of blood that is moving upwards from the legs to the heart. For some people, swelling happens in the evening indicating retention of salt and heart failure.


Some people will be comfortable while sitting but feel intense pain while walking or moving their legs. This is gentle, rhythmical technique that cleanses the connective tissue of inflammatory materials and toxins, enhances the activity of the immune system, reduces pain, and lowers the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. This is due to the low resting pressure that is exerted when the muscle is inactive and relaxed. You need to consult your doctor if there is excess of swelling with headaches, abdominal pain and nausea. Sometimes, there may be injury in the ligaments which is holding the ankle when it is stretched beyond limit. Certain allergic reactions, varicose veins and using contraceptive pills may also cause swollen feet. He will suggest you to wear support stockings if your problem is due to venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency occurs when there is any problem in the valves thus leaking the blood down into the vessels of the lower legs. Inadequate secretion of albumin can cause liver disease which can create swelling in the ankles. If swelling is due to edema, you will be put on diuretic drugs for increasing the output of urine.
