A massage can be an essential form of treatment following surgery.
A person can undergo surgery for a wide variety of reasons.
Some of the most common surgery types include cosmetic surgery or the removal of lymph nodes due to cancer. Following surgery, a person can often experience pain, inflammation, scarring and a condition called lymphedema. Lymphedema is what occurs following the removal of lymph nodes causing damage or blockage to the lymphatic system.
Damage or blockage of the lymphatic system can increase swelling and pain.
A massage can help a person post-surgery by encouraging an increase in healing, stimulating the lymphatic system and breaking down scar tissue. Our massage therapists at Physio.co.uk use effective techniques to help reduce negative symptoms post-surgery.
