Lymphedema Treatment

Lymphedema Treatment

At Sky Lakes Outpatient Rehabilitation Services, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy are available in one place.

Lymphedema is a chronic condition where fluid builds up in the tissues, causing swelling of the arm, leg, trunk, head, and neck. It occurs after trauma, surgery, removal of lymph nodes and/or radiation treatment.

Signs and symptoms:

  • Tight, achy feeling in tissues
  • Arm or leg easily tires and feels heavy
  • Visual swelling in arm, leg, head, neck, or chest

Therapy can reduce swelling, increase mobility in joints and muscles, and decrease the risk of further complications.
