LYMPHEDEMA TREATMENT / CHRONIC VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY

Simply put, LYMPHEDEMA is the swelling of a limb or body part as a result of damaged or insufficient lymph nodes. This swelling can be a
result of surgery/resection, radiation or present at birth. If any swelling is left untreated it can lead to cellulitis and hospitalization.

Chronic venous insufficiency responds very well to a lymphedema therapy regimen.

LYMPHEDEMA treatment may consist of:

  • Skin/Wound Care
  • Manual Therapy
  • Compression Wrapping / Bandaging
  • Therapeutic Exercise
  • Intermittent Vasopneumatic Compression Pumping
  • Activites of daily living training
  • Other modalities

WOUND CARE

Do you have a wound that won’t heal? At the Flint Center we specialize in the treatment of wounds.

wound healing; conversely, non-healing wounds may herald systemic pathology.
