Jane Wigg of the Lymphoedema Training Academy and pioneer of Lymph Vision is internationally acclaimed as being one of the leading lights in Lymphoedema treatment development, research and education and is well-known for her passion to 'optimalise treatment' for those living with Lymphoedema.

PhysioPod met Jane Wigg at CamExpo in 2009... "Jane was one of the first UK healthcare professionals to come forward to learn about Deep Oscillation for the treatment of Lymphoedema and has kept her students updated over the years with new information as it emerged"

In her work with PhysioPod and L-W-O Community, Jane has answered L-W-O community members questions in a regular "Dear Jane" strand for the PhysioPod Free Monthly NewsMagazines which are accompanied by animated videos created by PhysioPod with accompanying voice overs by Jane.

 

 

Each month Jane Wigg will answer a question from members of the LWO Community, in order to keep them as a top priority we are keeping them in this special place for easy access to our readers.

 

Question 1: Why doesn’t the lymphatic system get the recognition it deserves and why does the health care profession know so little about the Lymphoedema especially in the UK?

Question 2: How does a healthy lymphatic system work?

Question 3: How do the lymph channels form?

Question 4: How do lymph nodes work?

Question 5: Inflammation is there a link to Lymphoedema?

Question 6: Food and inflammation - is their a relationship?

Question 7: Why does the health care profession know so little about Lymphoedema and when it comes to lymphoedema, why are HCP’s so reluctant to accept that those who have lived with lymphoedema a long time may have more knowledge than they do?

Question 8: Is manual lymphatic drainage useful for my ongoing treatment? Many clinics are taking MLD away as part of treatment?
