Manual lymph drainage therapy using light massage for fibromyalgia sufferers: a pilot study

Updated: Dec 24, 2021


These patients were all treated with Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Vodder technique:


"Pain, stiffness, sleep, sleepiness and well-being all improved during the treatment period. Two months after treatment cessation, significant improvement remained in pain (P<0.001), stiffness (P<0.01), sleepiness (P<0.01) and well-being (P<0.001), but not in sleep, and after 5 months in pain (P<0.05) and sleepiness (P<0.01). Preliminary results indicate that MLDT can be a valuable alternative treatment for patients with fibromyalgia."
