Lymphedema is swelling of a body part, most commonly in the arms and legs. It is caused by an accumulation of fluid due to the improper flushing of the lymphatic system. This can be triggered by cancer treatments, including surgery and radiation, traumatic injuries or infections.
Symptoms of Lymphedema include:
- Persistent Swelling
- Hardening of the skin
- Decreased flexibility in the hand
Help is available with proven treatments. Our physical therapists (PT) have advanced training in the treatment of Lymphedema, including Skin and Nail care, Manual Lymph Drainage, Compression Therapy, and Complete Decongestive Therapy.
