Our physical therapists perform a detailed evaluation of each lymphedema
patient. They examine the amount of swelling, skin condition, flexibility
and strength in the swollen limb, and design a treatment plan. Treatment
always addresses skin care and education. It also may include compression
bandaging with special edema bandages, exercise and lymph-drainage massage.
Family members or friends often are instructed in the treatment methods
so they can help with the home program. We recognize that lymphedema is
a chronic medical condition that requires daily attention. Our goal is
to teach patients how to manage their lymphedema.
Great people. Great care. Great River Health System. Speak with our team
