A Myotherapy Approach - Lymphoedema Management
Do you have Lymphoedema?
Lymphoedema is swelling that comes about due to a build-up of fluid in the tissues that cannot drain correctly.
Swelling may affect any part of the body, but it is most common in the legs and in the arms. If the swelling is left untreated, these fluids will stay permanently fixed in the affected areas.
Lymphoedema can occur as a side effect of cancers and their treatments, from an infection or injury, or in those with mobility issues and obesity.
Some people are even born with the condition. Although there is no cure, Michelle Starr can improve discomfort and chronic swelling with specialist lymphoedema management.
Effective management, treatments and support can improve your ability to live and function normally. Michelle will assist you and help you to enjoy everyday activities by customised individual treatment plans, after carrying out an initial assessment.
