Lymphedema Therapy

Amy Brenna is a certified Lymphedema therapist.

Lymphedema is an abnormal collection of high-protein fluid just below the skin. This persistent swelling occurs commonly in the arm or leg, but also may occur in other parts of the body including breast and trunk, abdomen, head and neck or genitals.

What causes Lymphedema?
• After a mastectomy when lymph nodes are damaged or removed

• Following infection or scar formation, which blocks the lymphatic fluid flow
• After a surgery as swelling that is not getting better.

Lymphedema may occur weeks, months or years after the initial injury.

What treatment is recommended for Lymphedema?
Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is the Standard of Care for the treatment of Lymphdema. This consists of:

• Manual lymph drainage (MLD)
• Compression bandaging
• Proper skin care

• Remedial exercises
• Compression garments (sleeves, stockings and self-care training)
