Lymphedema Therapy Hero

Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is the abnormal buildup of lymph fluid in fatty tissues just under the skin. This leads to swelling most often in the arm(s), leg(s) or other parts of the body. Primary lymphedema can develop when lymphatic vessels are missing or impaired. Secondary lymphedema develops as a result of damage or removal of lymph vessels and/or nodes; this often occurs following trauma, surgery or radiation.

Our specially trained lymphedema therapists can help:

  • Decrease pain and anxiety
  • Reduce the risk of developing lymphedema
  • Reduce breast and chest wall swelling
  • Manage symptoms of lymphedema
  • Increase strength, range of motion and function
  • Increase your energy and endurance
  • Improve quality of life
  • Return you to an active lifestyle
