Lymphedema is a condition in which there is considerable swelling in the body, usually in the arms and legs. This is caused by a build up of excessive proteins or fluid in the
tissues. A person can experience lymphedema due to a variety of reasons such as lymph node removal from cancer treatments,
surgical knee replacements, cellulitis in the legs or as a congenital problem that may occur for no apparent reason. The key to treatment of lymphedema is early intervention and proper treatment. A skilled therapist will evaluate and develop an individualized treatment program.
