The lymph therapy system (LYKO) is a specialist subarea of physiotherapy wherein swellings of various origins, as well as pains, discomforts and illnesses of which swelling is a shared symptom, are treated.
WHO IS THE TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR?
Some causal factors are
- cancer treatments
- sequelae of injuries and surgeries
- chronic venous insufficiency
- congenital developmental disorders of the lymphatic system
Lymph therapy can also be used in the treatment of inflammatory rheumatic diseases, fibromyalgia symptoms, and various pain conditions such as headaches and CPRS (regional pain syndrome with many manifestations).
WHEN SHOULD I SEEK TREATMENT?
According to present knowledge, the lymph therapy system is the most effective treatment option for various different forms of lymphoedema. It is always advisable to treat lymphoedema, because if it persists for a long period of time, it can lead to e.g. changes in tissue. From the client’s perspective, the earlier treatment is begun, the better. Effective treatment requires full investment from the client as well.
