How Lymphatic Drainage Helps with
Oral Surgery Swelling Relief


Why Swelling Happens

Swelling happens whenever there is a backup of lymph in the body.  This backup of lymph happens after oral surgery for a few reasons.

First, the body has experienced a trauma.  Much like a paramedic may splint a broken bone before transporting an injured person, the body makes a ‘splint’ of sorts by causing swelling.  This impairs movement.  It’s not convenient for us, but it is a protection mechanism of the body.

Second, because the skin has been broken, the body is busy launching its defense (the immune system) by transporting lots of white blood cells and to the area to fight potential infection.

Lymphatic Drainage Removes
Built Up Fluid

By using special techniques of Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and/or Electro-Lymphatic Therapy (ELT) it is possible to open up the lymphatic channels and drain away the fluid that has accumulated in the face after oral surgery.

Both Manual and Electro-Lymphatic Therapies clear the natural pathways for lymph to begin flowing again.

Specific pathways must be followed to get lymph to move effectively.

These pathways begin at the collar bone.  This is where the entire lymphatic system empties into the bloodstream at the subclavian veins.

Once this area is opened, focus turns to the neck to clear backed up lymph.  The back of the neck is pulled forward and then down toward the collar bone.

Lymph is then drained from the jawbone out to the side of the neck just under the angle of the jaw and then down to the collarbone.

Once the jaw is clear, the face below the eyes is pulled down to the jaw, then out to the side of the neck and down to the collar bone.

The face at the mid-level of the eyes and up to the forehead are drained out towards the temple.  The fluid is then pulled down to under the angle of the jaw and then to the collar bones.

The top and back of the head are drained towards the back side of the skull  and then are pulled around to the collar bones.

 

The Final Result

After a lymphatic massage which opens the pathways for fluid to drain, people feel reduced pressure, pain, and discomfort.  It only takes an hour and the results are felt immediately.
