Lymphedema is a swelling in the arms or legs that is sometimes a side effect of breast cancer treatment, though blockage in the lymphatic system is related to other conditions as well. We offer a special therapy for our patients with this often painful condition. Our Lymphedema Management Program helps patients recovering from injury, surgical trauma, chronic conditions, inflammation and edema.
A therapist certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) applies rhythmic massage techniques using repetitive, precise hand movements applied lightly in the direction of lymph flow. MLD accelerates and improves functioning of the patient's lymphatic system.
