Lymphedema Therapy

If you suffer from lymphedema our certified lymphedema specialists can help alleviate your symptoms. While lymphedema is a life-long condition, it can be managed. At the lymphedema clinic, we perform complete decongestive therapy which consists of:

  • Manual lymph drainage (MLD)
  • Compression therapy
  • Exercise
  • Skin and nail care
  • Instructions in self care

MLD is a gentle manual technique that involves re-routing the fluid to lymph nodes that are functioning. After MLD, compression bandaging is applied to further reduce the swelling. Upon completion of therapy, compression garments are worn to prevent future swelling.
