The correct treatment
Complex Physical De-blocking Therapy
Complex Physical Decongestion Therapy- a therapy combining manual lymphatic drainage, follow-up compression treatment, motion therapy as well as skin care – is also used in the treatment of lipedema patients. It brings about a reduction in water retention (edema) typical of the disease and thus leads to both a reduction in size and a reduction in edema related sensitivity to pressure, tension and touch.
Afflicted persons are freed from pain through treatment, especially through therapy with flat knitted made-to-measure medical compression stockings. The fat deposits, however, often can not be reversed by means of Complex Physical Decongestion Therapy. To remove these deposits and thus improve body shape, patients have for some years undergone successfully surgical adipectomy (liposuction).
