Why? I hear you ask!
Well, to speed up your recovery.
It helps your body reduce the fluid & bruising around the knee joint, so you feel less pain, stiffness and inflammation, therefore allowing you more movement.
It is also incredibly relaxing - what a bonus!
How does it work?
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) encourages the lymph to flow more freely around your body. It helps increase the rate of drainage of excess fluid from your body's tissues.
How many sessions will I need?
This can vary from person to person but it is recommended that you aim for 4-6 consecutive sessions (or as close as possible!) to start with and can take place soon after surgery.
Also, have MLD before to prepare your body and lymphatics for surgery.
Will I always need MLD?
Depending on how your body reacts you may not need MLD again or it might be beneficial to have monthly top sessions.
