Review of first session after manual lymphatic drainage post concussion head injury.
Thank you for a detailed feedback from a clients first session of manual lymphatic drainage post concussion. Head trauma ten years ago and a recent concussion, advice, referral from a medical doctor suggested that MLD may help with reduction of inflammation without the need of painkillers.
Research is starting to come through in the last couple of years about inflammation and trauma head injuries.
Manual lymphatic drainage is not well known for treating concussion and brain injuries, but with more people having side effects with pain killers, MLD may be a good long term treatment plan.
Review of manual lymphatic drainage post head trauma.
“thanks so much for fitting me in on Wednesday and for being so open, informative, supportive and therapeutic. 🙂
I have had a positive response to the MLD. I have slept really well Wednesday night – and then had an almost anxiety/adrenalin day Thursday day – face planted knocked out couch sleep 4pm-8pm and then wide awake Thursday night. Solid restorative sleep 5am-10am this morning.
I havent really had restorative sleep in recent memory- so I’m very pleased. I know we discussed PTSD etc during the appointment – and how my recent Concussion and sharp treatment at uni has flared my PTSD/body.
So, restorative sleep is the jackpot of post treatment response. Thank you.
I have noticed muscles ‘flicking’ after short walks and twitching face/head muscles and body generally – even without activity.
And my hands/arms especially, but entire body, shaking Like I’m cold. Even with a wheat bag or blow heater.
My knees and ankles feel amazing.
My concussion symptoms have eased, but are still there.
My urination has really improved. No signs of dehydration colour. And for the first time in a long time – I’ve felt thirsty- and have taken in a lot of water/green tea.
I still hav lost my appetite to eat – since concussion . (Vertigo and nausea symptoms still there – but eased)
My digestion has been great, and not bloating or discomfort.
I didn’t want to send my reply immediately – but wrote it here and added to it as I noticed the response.
I’m very excited to follow up treatment/s.”
