After a cosmetic or reconstructive surgical procedure, many patients will experience swelling, inflammation, nerve regeneration, and fascia adhesion's as the body heals. Our goal at Meadows Chiropractic is to help you in your recovery. Through various methods in our massage package we aim to decrease pain and increase range of motion in the surgical and surrounding areas related to swelling, inflammation, and fascia adhesion's.
We have had great experience in recovery with various liposuction and lift procedures, as well as tummy tucks. We can let you know in a phone consult if we can help you with recovery from other procedures.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage: Swelling in surgical areas can be compounded. The surgery itself injures tissues, creating inflammation and swelling. The surgery can also damage blood vessels, not allowing accumulating lymphatic fluid to leave the area. Gentle lymphatic massage can both manually move lymphatic fluid towards lymphatic tissue (nodes) and stimulate lymph nodes to move lymph fluid more quickly. This massage can also include gentle vibration of surgical area and lymphatic areas as tolerated.
Kinesio-Taping assists in the reduction of swelling and inflammation, as well as reduces bruising, by pulling skin away from the fascia, allowing better flow of blood into the area and lymph away from the area beneath the tape.
Myofascial Release of the muscle and it's fascia, the connective tissue layer between skin and muscle, to reduce adhesion's that can become scars between skin and muscle. These adhesion's are painful, create restrictions in muscular, fascia, and skin movement, and become unsightly scars (lumps) under the skin.
