Head and Neck Lymphoedema - Improving Quality of Life With Deep Oscillation: Sue Hansard, Lymphoedema Specialist Practitioner

By Mary Fickling on Aug 26 2022.
Head and Neck Lymphoedema - Improving Quality of Life With Deep Oscillation: Sue Hansard, Lymphoedema Specialist Practitioner PhysioPod Forward: For the first few weeks of treatment, Sue was only able to use gentle Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), which softened and reduced the Lymphoedema. This was due to skin sensitivities and residual side effects of cancer treatment. Supplementary modalities of Kinesio Tape, Deep Oscillation and low level infra red light therapy were not well tolerated. A garment was found that worked well, without causing any skin irritation and the patient performed Simple Lymphatic Drainage (SLD). After eight weeks, low level infra red light, then Kinesio tape and 6D tape, and finally, Deep Oscillation were re-introduced.
