Hi Guys,  Has anyone tried rebounding for lymphadema?  I was reading that it really helps move extracellular fluid.  Thanks, Kathy

Hi, Kathy, and welcome!

LindaLou had a long thread on here not too long ago about rebounding. Lots of the gals here tried it (some of them only after dark on their backyard trampolines Laughing). But doggone if I can find the thread. I've typed in rebounder, and trampoline, and even backyard, but it doesn't show up. Frown Can anybody find it? Thanks! Kiss

When I saw the title of this thread I thought you were talking about "rebound swelling." But since you aren't I just thought I'd remind all you "swell" gals who live in "cold country" that exposure of your hands to cold (think "snowball fight" or "driveway shoveling" or "just one more run down Snow King") can result in rebound swelling -- your hands swell when they start to thaw out.  With our compromised lymph systems, this can take a lot of effort and a long time to resolve, so get some really warm and cozy mittens and "take good care of yourself..." Tongue out Bah! Lymphedema!

Sorry for the detour. Embarassed

I rebound everyday for my LE. Rebounding helps me, especially with my comfort level. If I am experiencing discomfort prior to rebounding, I generally feel fine after rebounding. I rebound 4-5 times each day for 3 or 4 minutes each time. I do the "health bounce," in which my feet don't leave the mat. Rebounding is fun and helps my LE, so I consider it a successful part of my fight against LE. Best wishes for good health!

Hi Kathy,

I recently bought a rebounder based on recommendations from this site, I believe.  I really enjoy it!  It is very low-impact and easy on my joints.  It is too early to tell whether it has helped my lymphedema or not, but any movement or exercise is good for overall health, so for me it was a good decision.  Smile

I think this is the post Binney was referring to. It actually started out as a question about Acupuncture but evolved into information on Rebounding also...(not that I had anything to do with that!) :)

LindaLou, thanks for the link to the older discussion on rebounders.  One person made the comment that they got more benefits from the rebounder than other LE exercises and walking.  What I noticed for me is that my running helps me some.  It is more jarring than the rebounder but does get the juices flowing.  I do find walking is problematic.  I think for me the reason is that I dangle my arms while walking and gravity draws the fluid flow to my hands.  When I run, and maybe it's true when you use the rebounder, I hold my hands up with elbows bent.  Just my observations.

Going back to the previous thread again, I like your suggestion of bouncing on the balls of your feet in a rhythmic fashion to simulate the rebounder when one isn't available. 

I am new to the LE scene and love expanding my bag of tricks with this kind of information.  I do have the luxury to work at home.  I was just listening in on one of those quarterly rallying concalls (on mute with speakerphone on) scantily clad doing my MLD.  :-)  Next call I'll be bouncing on the balls of my feet.  Thanks!

I have been doing this also, and it seems to allow me to skip some of the MLD massage and get equal results.

Thanks LindaLou and Binney,

I bought an Urban Rebounder with stablizer bar last night and I've tried it in 5 minute intervals both last night and thismorning. I hope it works on my breast lymphedema...

cathygf's post looks like a troll, only post about urban-rebounders and a site to go to about rebounding.
