Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is today an indispensable part of Physical Therapy. This compendium begins by explaining the anatomical and physiological foundations of MLD. Simple, clear diagrams show the lymph pathways, and readers will be brought up to date with more current perspectives on the lymph systems.


However, the emphasis is on the practical use of MLD. There is a large section devoted to lymphedema and therapy with photos of several different types of patients. Other chapters of the book are devoted to traumatic injuries, central nervous system disorders, dermatological conditions, rheumatic disorders and arthropathies.


Practical aspects of MLD are dealt with in a separate section at he end of the book. Therapy strokes are described and photographed.
