How to treat lymphatic vessel diseases
In our special practice, we take care of all types of lymphatic vessel diseases. Rather than transporting blood, the lymphatic system serves to remove fluids stored in the human tissue. Symptoms like heavy or swollen legs often signal pathological developments in the lymph vessels. Lymphatic problems also occur after lymph nodes have been removed during surgery. We identify the specific symptoms in our diagnostics using ultrasound and a clinical inspection and generate an individual treatment profile. Compression stockings, compression bandages, lymphatic drainage and other decongestion treatments usually produce good results.
Types of lymphatic vessel diseases:
- Lymphedema (accumulation of fluids in the tissue)
- Lipedema (accumulation of fat in the tissue)
- Swollen legs
