Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is swelling, generally in the arms or legs, caused by a defect in the lymphatic system that results in too much fluid in the tissues. Some people are born with lymphatic problems that cause primary lymphedema with swelling that can occur at birth or later in life. Secondary lymphedema can develop after surgery or due to radiation, scarring, trauma, infection, chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), parasitic disease (filariasis) or obesity. Lymphedema therapy helps to decrease swelling, increase lymph drainage, improve skin condition, enhance function, relieve discomfort and reduce the risk of skin inflammation or infection (cellulitis).

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a program of supervised exercise and education for people diagnosed with a pulmonary disease.  Individuals work with a multidisciplinary team of clinicians. Individuals diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema), chronic asthma, pre- and post-lung transplant, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and other pulmonary diseases. Some people enter the program after a hospital stay, and others may be referred by their primary care physician or pulmonologist. For more information about COPD please click here.
