The Benefits of Physical Activity for Lymphoedema / Lipoedema
Movement stimulates the flow of fluid through the lymph system. Muscle movement is the mechanism which drives the ‘drainage function’ of the lymph system. The body is designed so that the movements we make during our everyday activities involve the expansion and contraction of the various muscles in our bodies. These muscle movements massage and squeeze the tissues around them, forcing excess fluid out of the tissues and into the lymph vessels. When the muscles relax and the ‘squeeze’ stops, the tissues re-coil, so allowing the now empty lymph vessels to suck up more fluid from the tissues. Therefore, every move you make matters.

Whether that movement is achieved through physical activity in a more structured manner or through the general activities of everyday life, any activity will enable our lymph system to perform its job effectively. Indeed, physical activity and everyday movement are the key foundations of a successful treatment programme.

As well as increasing the flow of lymph fluid to help reduce swelling, physical activity can:
help you maintain a healthy weight keep your joints flexible, maintaining and improving your range of movement help you feel better about yourself reduce stress and anxiety.
