Lymphedema is swelling that can occur in the arms, legs, head/neck, trunk, pelvis, and breast after cancer treatment. Our Certified Lymphedema Therapists (CLT's) have specialized training to address your area of swelling. There is no cure for lymphedema and it can progress, so it is best to get treatment as early as possible. 

The gold standard for lymphedema treatment is Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) which includes:

  • Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)

  • Compression (garments and/or bandages)

  • Skin Care

  • Exercise
