Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid that creates swelling in your arm or leg. It can cause discomfort and keep you from your daily activities, and if left untreated, it can lead to secondary infections.
Through our Lymphedema Management Program, your care team will work to reduce the swelling to improve your comfort and function. We provide:
- Evaluation — A comprehensive assessment of the limb can help determine the best treatment path.
- Treatment — Many cases require Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), including massage to help drain lymphatic fluid, therapeutic exercise, and compression techniques to reduce your swelling and increase your mobility.
- Education — We will teach you easy self-massage, compression and exercise techniques so you can continue managing your condition at home.
