oedema therapy Wageningen

Oedema therapy at Fysiotherapie Vis in Wageningen.

An oedema is an abnormal build up of fluid. Oedema could be the result of cancer, vein issues, scars, radiation, chemotherapy, an operation or an accident. There are also congenital oedemas. Our oedema therapy is aimed at relieving you of the unwanted fluid build up.

What does oedema therapy entail?

Oedema therapy, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, is aimed mostly at the treatment of lymphatic system disorders. At Fysiotherapie Vis we treat various types of oedemas, such as:

  • lymphoedema
  • venous oedema
  • lip oedema

It is possible to suffer from combinations of the abovementioned oedemas.

Treatment of the various types of oedemas:
The oedema therapist will not only treat your oedema, but will also explain certain issues and advise you on those things you could do yourself.

Manual lymphatic drainage is a special massage technique that stimulates the discharge of fluid, where breathing exercises, exercise therapy, lymphatic taping and compression of the oedema could bring relief. Venous oedemas are bandaged or combated with a specially fitted therapeutic support stocking.
