Lymphedema Clinic: What We Offer

A lymphedema clinic is a specialized healthcare facility that provides comprehensive care for patients with lymphedema. Lymphedema is a medical condition characterized by swelling in the arms, legs, or other parts of the body due to a compromised lymphatic system. The gold standard treatment for Lymphedema is Complete Decongestive Therapy, which should be performed by a Certified Lymphedema Therapist. Our clinic in Hoover, AL, employs a Certified Lymphedema Therapist to help treat your lymphedema!

Physical therapy plays a vital role in managing lymphedema by improving lymphatic flow, reducing swelling, and preventing complications. The goal of a lymphedema physical therapy clinic is to provide individualized treatment plans that include manual lymphatic drainage, compression therapy, exercise programs, and education on self-care and skin care techniques.

Some of the services that a lymphedema physical therapy clinic may offer include:

  1. Evaluation and assessment of lymphedema
  2. Customized treatment plans for managing lymphedema
  3. Manual lymphatic drainage
  4. Compression therapy (e.g., compression garments, bandaging)
  5. Exercise programs
  6. Skin care management and prevention of infections
  7. Education on self-care techniques (e.g., skin care, exercise, lymphatic drainage techniques)
  8. Monitoring and management of lymphedema-related complications (e.g., cellulitis, lymphangitis)
  9. Evaluation for pneumatic compression devices for home use

If you think you may have lymphedema or have been diagnosed with the condition, it is essential to seek specialized care from a Certified Lymphedema Therapist at a lymphedema clinic to receive appropriate treatment and improve your quality of life.
