How Can Our Lymphedema Care Clinic Help You?
Lymphedema is a condition that causes one or both legs or arms to swell due to a buildup of high protein fluid just beneath the skin. This condition can be primary (meaning it has occurred independently) or secondary (meaning another disease or underlying condition is the cause).
Regardless of the origin of lymphedema, patients undoubtedly experiencing discomfort or pain. The overall goal of our Lymphedema Management Program at PAM Health is to ease symptoms and improve quality of life.
Our Specialized Approach to Lymphedema Therapy
Everyone’s body reacts differently to various therapies, so it is important to develop an individualized approach for ongoing lymphedema care. At PAM Health, our team works with patients to ensure individual needs are addressed. Although there is no cure for lymphedema, we offer numerous therapeutic techniques that can provide relief.
Your Lymphedema Management Program may include:
Manual lymphatic drainage: These targeted massages and soft tissue manipulations promote lymphatic fluid drainage.
Compression therapy: Bandages and special compression garments provide pressure to drain fluid from extremities.
Exercise: Physical activity is an effective way to promote drainage. Our team advises which exercises work best for each person.
Patient education: Knowing what lymphedema is and what can be done at home to find relief can promote the healing process.
