I attended Lymphedema Taping course on March 1st, 2013 in Burlington.
Lymphedema taping is a part of Kinesiology taping technique, it greatly improves Lymphatic and Venous return thus emphasizes swelling treatment. Taping is especially useful for swelling in shoulders or trunk where is difficult to apply compression bandages, however, tape can be used with compression bandages or garments for better treatment outcome.
Tape can be worn about 7 days, and can be wet during shower or swimming.
We also learned techniques to reduce pain, support muscle functions and joint stability, it was a great course to attend.
