The Lymphedema Management Program specializes in evaluating and treating patients with a compromised lymphatic system. Lymphedema therapy focuses on complete decongestive therapy utilizing evaluation, education in skin care, compression bandaging, specific exercises, and a specialized massage called manual lymph drainage. These techniques can help reduce the size of an extremity by moving lymph fluid back into the circulatory system.
The ultimate goal of therapy is to educate the patient so they can successfully manage their lymphedema independently following treatment.
A referral from a Florida licensed physician or physician's assistant is required.
