Lymphedema is a condition that results from impaired flow of the lymphatic system.
Symptoms of lymphedema include swelling in one or more extremities. The swelling may range from mild to severe and disfiguring.
Primary lymphedema is present at birth; secondary lymphedema develops as a result of damage to or dysfunction of the lymphatic system.
While there is no cure for lymphedema, compression treatments and physical therapy may help reduce the swelling and discomfort.
We have licensed therapist certified in the LeDuc method, which is a treatment for lymphedema. Lymphedema is a protein rich swelling that usually occurs in the arms and legs but occasionally in other parts of the body. Our therapist provides manual lymphatic drainage, multi-layered compression bandaging, compression garment fitting and educational precautions to help you manage your lymphedema associated symptoms.
