Manual Lymphatic Drainage(MLD) is administered through a series of strokes applied to the body with intention to stimulate the movement of the lymphatic fluid in order to assist the body in cleansing. It is a very gentle rhythmic technique that cleanses the connective tissue of inflammatory materials and toxins, reduces swelling, enhances the activity of the immune system, reduces pain, and lowers the activity of the sympathetic nervous system. Predominantly used as a treatment for lymphedema, MLD offers many health benefits and uses. MLD can also be used as a detoxification treatment and may help decrease the appearance of cellulite, abdominal bloating, and can help reduce post-surgical swelling from orthopedic or cosmetic surgery.

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is a broad term that encompasses disorders of the temporomandibular joint and its associated anatomical structures. The disorder may be intra-articular, due to inflammation, internal structural changes (internal derangement) or degeneration, or it may be extra- articular due to imbalance or over-activity of the jaw muscles, commonly the muscles of mastication or the cervical muscles.
Non-invasive, conservative treatments have found to be effective for the treatment of TMD and facial pain. Metro’s evidence based and state-of-the-art treatments are very effective in relieving and managing TMD. Even when the symptoms are long-standing and severe, we have self-managing tips we will share with you to help with your symptoms. With appropriate physical therapy, most patients will see a significant improvement in their symptoms within 3 to 6 weeks.
