Course Description: In this lecture presentation, participants will learn the value of Lymphatic Balancing (LB) as part of your manual therapy practice. Lymphatic Balancing is a manual therapy technique t hat utilizes a total-body lymphatic approach to treat orthopedic conditions.
What is Lymphatic Balancing: Lymphatic Balancing (LB) is a specifically designed curriculum that applies specialized manual lymphatic drainage techniques, originally designed to treat lymphedema, to the orthopedic patient. LB expands on the philosophical approach to lymphedema pioneered by Emil Vodder, PhD (Vodder Method), Bruno Chikly MD, DO (Lymph Drainage Therapy), and Albert Leduc PT, PhD (Leduc method) with the addition of traditional osteopathic lymphatic pumping techniques making it more applicable to orthopedic injuries. LB can be used to treat excess fluid (swelling), fluid stagnation or lymphedema in the cranium, spine, thorax, abdomen, viscera, pelvis, upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower extremities (hip, knee, ankle, and foot).
