Treatment for Lymphedema

Once diagnosed, our knowledgeable physicians and therapists will guide you through our comprehensive Lymphedema program.  After evaluation by a Physician and/or a Physical Therapist, treatment would be for 60 minutes, 4 days a week.  All treatments are provided in a private room and may include:

  • Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)
  • Bandaging
  • Proper skin care and diet counseling
  • Compression garments
  • Exercises
  • Self-MLD and bandaging
  • Education on the lymphatic system

Contraindications to treatment include: Sudden marked increase in swelling, infection, and/or congestive heart failure.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
