The outpatient Lymphedema Therapy program at Highpoint Therapy Services helps people who are experiencing abnormal swelling of a body part caused by excessive buildup of lymph fluid. Our certified lymphedema therapists use a non-invasive program known as Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) to treat lymphedema or chronic swelling.
Lymphedema is a chronic, progressive disorder of the lymphatic system which can cause areas of the body to swell. It occurs most commonly after surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer. Other causes include infection, obesity, and venous insufficiency. Trauma, as well as recovery from other orthopedic surgeries.
Symptoms of lymphedema include swelling of the limbs, heaviness and limitation of movement, repeated infections, skin thickening or hardening and discomfort.
