Reduce swelling and restore a better quality of life
Swelling of limbs and other body parts caused by the accumulation of lymphatic fluid in soft tissue is called lymphedema. It can occur as a result of surgery, trauma, radiation therapy or genetic causes interfering with the lymph nodes' ability to cleanse the body's fluid and return it to circulation. If left untreated, it can also lead to infection, loss of motion, skin problems and pain. Our lymphedema services provide treatment to help control the condition, allowing you to live a quality life.
Therapeutic options to help control the condition
Depending on symptoms, our lymphedema services offer a variety of therapy options. A thorough evaluation is conducted to determine which option is best for you. Treatment may include:
- Manual lymph drainage using a non-invasive therapy technique
- Compression bandaging
- Special pumping to reduce swelling
- Remedial exercise
- Meticulous skin care regime
- Long-term management planning
If you believe you may benefit from lymphedema services, contact your physician for a referral.
