Lymphedema Therapy

The Lymphedema Management Clinic is staffed by therapists who are certified and have extensive training in the treatment of individuals with lymphedema. Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of water and proteins called lymphatic fluid in the body. The fluid buildup can cause swelling and commonly occurs in the arms, legs and abdomen. Lymphedema can often occur after cancer surgery, radiation therapy, trauma or infection. It can result in the loss of mobility, limit your ability to complete self-care tasks and cause other complications.

Signs and symptoms of lymphedema

  • Persistent swelling of the hand, arm, chest or breast, foot or leg, pelvis, groin, abdomen, face or neck.
  • Heaviness or tightness in affected areas.
  • Multiple infections in a limb.
  • Thickening of the skin.
  • Fluid leaking through the skin.

Lymphedema Treatment Options

Although lymphedema cannot be cured, it can be controlled with specialized treatments.

  • Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD).
  • Light massage to move lymphatic fluid out of area.
  • Compressive bandages.
  • Strengthening and stretching exercises.
  • Compression garments.
  • Skin care and self-care assessment.

To begin lymphedema therapy, you must obtain a referral for occupational therapy with a diagnosis of lymphedema. Patients must also bring with them the completed health history form.
