Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is a lifelong condition in which fluids gather in tissues causing swelling in parts of your body (arms, legs, face, neck), where the lymphatic system was damaged due to surgery or other medical conditions.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Learning the lymphedema precautions and how to manage lymphedema at home
  • Decreased swelling using a noninvasive decongestive therapy

Our team offers lymphedema wrapping and garment fitting.

Our Rehabilitation Services team offers the following specialty evaluations:

Wheelchair and Seating Assessments
Sometimes your doctor or insurance would like a special kind of assessment to determine if insurance will cover a wheelchair, scooter or changes to your current seating system. Our therapists work with a seating vendor during your evaluation to ensure your seating needs are met.

Physical Capacity Evaluations
These assessments are typically ordered by your doctor to get a full look at your physical abilities, most commonly for workman’s compensation purposes. Examination includes lifting, carrying, walking, stairs, pushing, pulling and more.

Driving Safety Evaluations

These comprehensive evaluations including assessment of your visual skills, strength, reaction time, cognitive screening and problem solving to help determine if you are safe to continue driving after an illness or injury.

Our team works with you to create a plan that helps you recover from illness or injury and restore your independence and functional ability.
