Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is a build-up of fluid just under the skin. This causes swelling, most often in the arms or legs. While there is no cure, we can help patients manage swelling and pain through therapy.

Conditions We Treat

  • Abnormal lymph systems from birth
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Circulatory disorders
  • Effects of radiation
  • Liposuction
  • Lymph node removal

The length of treatment depends on the severity of the lymphedema and how long you’ve had the disease. Patients who have had lymphedema for years can still respond to treatment.
