Lymphedema Therapy

If you have been diagnosed with lymphedema — a buildup of fluid in tissues caused by damage from surgery, radiation, infection or trauma — help is here. At Jefferson Moss-Magee Rehabilitation, we work with you to develop a customized treatment plan to reduce and control the swelling in an arm or leg, to help restore range of motion and strength, and improve overall function and mobility.

Specialized, medically based treatment for lymphedema is provided by certified lymphedema therapists. Treatment reduces pain and swelling and restores the ability to participate in daily activities. Specialists work with each patient to deliver unique treatments for lymphedema utilizing complete decongestive therapy, which includes:

  • Manual lymph drainage —specialized massage that stimulates lymph movement
  • Compression therapy —bandages applied to prevent further accumulation of fluid.
  • Exercise — designed to increase the flow of lymph fluid
  • Meticulous skin and nail care — help prevent infections
