Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymph fluid in the arms, legs or trunk. It typically occurs after cancer or cancer treatments, such as the surgical removal of lymph nodes and/or radiation.
Lymphedema can cause discomfort, interfere with wound healing, and cause infections. It can be a long-term problem, but can be managed.
Our rehabilitation therapies staff uses evidence-based treatments tailored to meet the needs of each patient. Components of the program include:
- Manual lymph drainage
