Lymphedema Therapy

Depending on the extensiveness of surgery for breast cancer, postoperative side effects range from mild to severe. Those symptoms can include degrees of swelling of the arm on the operated side, muscular and surgical pains, decreased shoulder mobility and scar management. Specialized treatment for lymphedema secondary to surgery for breast cancer is a key component of the Lymphedema program. Lymphedema can significantly affect a patient's quality of life, causing the inability to perform activities of daily living, loss of sensation in the affected extremity or development of emotional problems. Through Lymphedema therapy, we want women to regain and attain a new degree of comfort, freedom of movement and functionality. Our services include: * Hands-on lymphatic drainage (to redirect the accumulated fluid out of the affected arm into the tissues); * Use of a compression pump in the patient's therapy regimen (to help reduce swelling); * Exercise training that includes range-of-motion (ROM), strengthening and aerobics (to aid in filtering the lymph system); and * Teaching how to self-apply compression bandaging (to equip women to continue edema control at home).
