Lymphedema, a build-up of protein-rich fluid that causes swelling, affects approximately 1% of the U. S. population.  Most often, lymphedema affects the arms and legs, but the face, neck, abdomen, and genitals can also suffer. Secondary lymphedema, which usually results from surgery, injury, scarring, trauma, radiation, or infection, is the form most often treated in the physical therapy clinic. We use gentle manual treatment, targeted exercise, and multi-layer bandaging to treat lymphedema, based on your individual needs. We can reduce swelling, increase body motion, and improve function, all of which leads to greater health and wellness for you.
