In this instructional video, Vicki Ralph, MPPA, OTR/L, CLT-LANA demonstrates Self-MLD techniques while providing clear verbal instruction. Vicki has been involved for nearly a decade in educating patients with lymphedema on ways to self-manage the swelling related to their condition. Self-MLD can help decrease pain and improve their range of motion, mobility, and activities of daily living.
Vicki shows the MLD sequences for the left upper extremity, right upper extremity, left lower extremity, and right lower extremity. An onscreen menu lets patients go directly to the sequence that is appropriate for their needs.
NOTE: If you previously learned Self-MLD from a therapist, the sequences taught in this DVD may differ from what you learned, but will be equally or even more effective. There are several variations of MLD that are practiced in the United States, but the basic premise is the same, so results should be similar.
