Lymphedema

Treatment of edema (swelling) involving the upper and/or lower extremities is provided on an outpatient basis. Our program focuses on reducing limb size, returning skin/tissue to normal condition and ultimately self-management of symptoms.

Possible Causes:

  • Damage/removal of lymph nodes related to cancer treatment
  • Dysfunction of the venous system and/or congenital disorders

Edema related to both venous and lymphatic dysfunction can be effectively treated through our program.

Treatment Possibilities:

  • Use of compression wraps/garments
  • Manual therapy
  • Compression pump
  • Exercise
  • Education regarding skin care and activity modification
