To relieve fluid buildup caused by retaining fluids, you might try using a lymphadema pump. These pumps are designed to imitate the lymphatic system while removing excess body fluids that pool up in the body. They can reduce swelling in the legs, feet, or arms. This is done through applying a sleeve over the affected area and allowing the lymphadema pump to squeeze. It sends the fluid back up into the body. The excess fluids are expelled from the body naturally. These pumps can be purchased in most medical supply stores. Some stores even rent them out. For more information on lymphadema pumps, call a medical supply company near you.
