Chronic Pain Management

As Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very gentle technique acting on a number physiological systems in the body, it can prove effective at addressing chronic pain in a number of ways.

The autonomic nervous system of the body is divided into two categories the sympathetic system and the parasympathetic system. The sympathetic system increases heart rate, constricts blood vessels and raises blood pressure. The parasympathetic system innervates smooth muscles in the body, slows the heart rate, increases vessel and glandular activity, and controls sphincter muscles in the body. Both systems where thought at one time not to be under our conscious control.

The gentle, rhythmical nature of MLD reduces sympathetic nervous activity allowing the parasympathetic system to pre-dominate.   Many of the chronic pain states, such as fibromyalgia, are thought to be caused by a ‘sympathetically maintained pain state’ due to an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system. Therefore, a technique such as MLD that encourages reduced sympathetic activity may actually allow the system to re-balance and positively influence the chronic pain state.

MLD is also effective in reducing the presence of inflammatory agents in soft tissue, due to stimulating lymph flow from the region. Some studies have shown that inflammatory agents, such as cytokines and prostaglandins can continue to be produced long after the initial trauma is passed.   Stimulation of the lymph system can assist in removing these agents from the tissues thereby reducing inflammation and relieving pain. Removal of the inflammatory agents can also reduce localized edema, this further relieves pain and possibly accelerates healing.

Absolute & Relative Contra-Indications

 Contra-indications are conditions or factors that serve as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment. Due to the effectiveness of Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) in accelerating lymph flow there are a number of health concerns that do not allow individuals to receive MLD.   If you are experiencing any of the following situations please discuss these with a therapist prior to receiving any treatment:

  • Untreated Malignant Diseases
  • Acute Inflammations
  • Recent Thrombosis
  • Cardiac Insufficiency
  • Renal Failure

I’ve been going to see Lee Saunders for several years for massage thèrepy and he is the best there is. Hands down (so to speak). Salutaris is a very comfortable, clean and welcoming environment. Prices are competitive. Salutaris (and Lee) are well worth visiting.

The most impressive thing about Salutaris is that massage is not just a physical, one dimensional activity. At the clinic, massage is a molding and a healing, a bringing back together of body, mind and soul. I see the goal as wanting to return these three to perfect harmony. I have had a few other massage therapists who are very adept at massage therapy. I have never left feeling as whole as when I leave Salutaris.

I had hip resurfacing done – it’s called the Birmingham procedure – on my right hip. I went for Manual Lymph Drainage treatment to see if it would help my recovery. And it did. I was treated very professionally, but also very gently. I felt comfortable and confident that this was the right place for me to be. And the treatment worked. It made me feel better and certainly helped me recover from surgery more quickly.

I had surgery on my knees. The pain was so intense that people told me it hurt to watch me walk. I knew a little about lymphatic drainage, and thought it might help after surgery. It did. It was fantastic. I could literally see the swelling go down. The therapist drained the equivalent of a bottle of wine in a week. I healed much quicker. The surgeon was amazed I could return to my job, running up and down steel ladders. I’d been terrified I wouldn’t be able to work there again.

“When I first came to Salutaris, I was very skeptical of the MLD technique – but was desperate and willing to try anything. My hip and lower legs were agony from an inflamed disc. I tried other forms of massage and acupuncture but nothing was effective. Since I started MLD and massage therapy at Salutaris I’ve got consistently better. I’m now sleeping through the night and am almost completely off pain medication. As a sufferer of chronic low-back pain, I’ve found this has been the most effective treatment by far.”

Highly recommend. Nice secretary and they served me well. Felt way better leaving. Her husband had a concussion like me but worse. We had a good talk for like 10 minutes over the phone. So nice of her to take that little extra time and have a great customer bond like that. They truly care about their clients. Give them Your business. Will be seeing you again one day.
