Lymphedema Therapy

What is Lymphedema Therapy?

Lymphedema is a persistent swelling of a body part due to a blockage in lymphatic flow when nodes or vessels are damaged or abnormal. The swelling may result in pain, decreased range of motion, and/or weakness. This results in the abnormal accumulation of protein.

Lymphedema Physical Therapy Services

Welcome to our Lymphedema Physical Therapy services, where we prioritize individualized care in comfortable, private treatment rooms. Our hands-on, one-on-one sessions, lasting 45-60 minutes, ensure a personalized approach to address your unique needs. Our specialized services encompass Complete Decongestive Therapy, featuring Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and compression bandaging, aimed at reducing swelling and promoting optimal lymphatic system function.

Our therapists utilize a comprehensive range of techniques, including MLD, soft tissue mobilization, and scar mobilization, to enhance tissue health and mobility. We incorporate compression bandaging and garments to provide necessary support and prevent the re-accumulation of lymphatic fluid. Our modalities, including cold laser, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation, further contribute to effective therapeutic outcomes.

In addition, our tailored therapeutic exercises focus on range of motion, stretching, and strengthening to improve overall mobility and function. We prioritize patient education, offering insights into maintaining reduced edema, posture re-education, proper body mechanics, and essential skin care practices. At our practice, our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed for ongoing self-care and a more comfortable, fulfilling life.
