Lymphatic drainage obtained with manual manoeuvres. Today, there are several techniques available, among them the most popular ones are lymphatic drainage according to Földi-Vödder and the one according to A. Leduc. By means of several codified manoeuvres, the lymph is drained by pushing it towards residual outflow pathways, and, at the same time, by activating the peristaltic action of lymphangions, namely the functional unit of lymphatic vessels. According to recent studies, unlike mechanical drainage, which mostly acts on the lymph liquid component, manual drainage has a higher effect on protein content, thus also decreasing the fibrous component, which is a main feature of chronic lymphedema.
