Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is a chronic medical condition where the accumulation of lymphatic fluid leads to swelling, usually in the arms or legs. The lymphatic system is a vital part of the immune and circulatory systems and drains excess fluids from tissues.

Lymphedema can occur when this system is compromised due to an obstruction or impairment that may be caused by surgery, radiation therapy, trauma, or congenital conditions. Common symptoms of lymphedema include swelling, heaviness, or tightness in the affected limb and decreased range of motion. 

Treatment approaches often include specialized therapies such as:

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage - This gentle massage technique encourages the natural drainage of the lymphatic system.
  • Compression Therapy - Compression techniques, such as bandaging or compression garments, help to maintain reduced swelling and manage lymphatic fluid.
  • Tailored Exercise Programs - These can improve muscle function and enhance circulation to reduce swelling and improve the overall function of the lymphatic system.

Conditions We Treat

We address a wide range of conditions, providing personalized care to enhance your overall well-being. This includes:

  • Post-Surgical Rehabilitation: Our programs help optimize recovery, rebuild strength, and enhance mobility after surgical procedures.
