Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is caused by dysfunction with the lymph vessels and/or lymph nodes. It can affect any part of the body, arms, legs, trunk or face. It involves swelling that can limit the use of a limb causing gradual thickening and hardening of the skin and increased risk of infection.

Are you at risk? You might be at risk if you have had:


  • Cancer treatment that involved surgical removal of lymph nodes and/or radiation
  • Any surgery that cut through major lymph vessels
  • Family members with a history of swelling
  • Longstanding problems with your veins
  • Injuries resulting in prolonged swelling
  • Repeated skin infections accompanied with prolonged swelling


What is the treatment for lymphedema?


Lymphedema cannot be cured but it can be controlled with Complete Decongestive Therapy to reduce swelling and maintain reduction. Treatment with a certified lymphedema therapist may include:

  • Manual lymph drainage technique to move excess fluid to working lymph nodes
  • Multi-layered gradient compression wrapping
  • Exercises to facilitate lymph flow
  • Skin care to improve skin quality
  • Education to enhance the understanding of the condition and skills for life-long management of lymphedema

Treatment and diagnostic programs vary by location.
