              Manual Edema Mobilization for the UE
             Sandra Artzberger , MS, OTR, CHT, CLT

Course Description
Therapists are often frustrated with persistent edema that continues to return
in spite of their best efforts. Specific techniques to activate the lymphatic
system will quickly and permanently reduce edema that presents as viscous,
thick and very slow to “rebound” from being pitted. Manual Edema
Mobilization (MEM) was designed specifically to activate the lymphatic
system. A new shorter version enables the therapist to do the technique in a
shorter time frame. The extensive lab time and case study presentation
enable participants to feel confident to immediately apply techniques in a
clinical setting.
Learning Objectives
*Discuss the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system.
*Discuss the rationale and how to specifically mobilize for edema reduction.
*List the various types and stages of edema and describe ways to treat them.
*Practice MEM and bandaging techniques for orthopedic, sub-acute post
surgical hand/arm edema.
*Describe edema evaluation and documentation methods.
*Become proficient in application of MEM “pump point” stimulation.
