Lymphedema Therapy

The condition develops when excess fluid collects in the arms and legs, causing those areas to swell. Lymphedema can also occur in other areas of the body.

Our certified lymphedema therapists can help you manage this condition with effective treatment methods and prevention tips.

Lymphedema treatment is covered by most major insurance carriers.

Services We Provide

  • Manual lymph drainage – a gentle massage technique that stimulates increased lymphatic flow
  • Compression bandaging - layers of padding and bandages can help decrease the size of the affected area and prevent the return of swelling after manual lymph drainage
  • Exercise - gradual exercise and flexibility training on the affected side of the body can help improve lymphatic flow

We can also connect you with resources for compression garments, which can help you maintain results after swelling goes down.
