Treatment of lipoedema
Lipoedema is a chronic condition of unknown causality that effects the patient aesthetically.
The accumulation of fat tissue under the skin blocks the normal circulation of the lymph fluids in the body, that leads to retention of fluids usually around the thighs and buttocks. The condition does not respond to dieting and exercise but requires specialized dealing.
In our clinic you can deal effectively with the use of Complete Decongestive Therapy that consists of two phases:
Phase one Decongestion: The painless and relaxing use of the lymph massage on the suffering areas mobilizes the lymph circulation, and afterwards follows the binding with specialized bandages until the next session.
The required number of sessions differ from 5-8, their duration is 90 minutes and they have to be performed almost daily.
Phase two Maintainance: maintaining the result is easy with the use of compression garments, such as stockings that go up until the knee and short trousers. Their use is effective in combination with aerobic exercise due to its compressive properties.
Phase one can be repeated for a shorter period of time in case there is an increasing tendency of oedema in the future.
