Lymphedema occurs when the lymph vessel system loses it's ability to reabsorb protein molecules and lymphatic fluid. This can lead to chronic swelling in a single limb or entire region of the body. Because lymphedema is a chronic condition and there are no medications to treat it, many people believe they must endure discomfort and swelling the rest of their lives. Our team has a better solution.
We have over 10 years of combined experience managing lymphedema and are trained in a variety of effective management techniques including: manual lymphatic drainage, bandaging, custom edema sleeves, and targeted exercise to increase strength and range of motion. We can tailor a program to your specific needs and provide step-by-step guidance to help you manage your condition long-term.
