Pivot Physical Therapy provides lymphedema care at multiple clinics. In fact, our North Carolina clinics make up the largest and most comprehensive Lymphedema Treatment Centers in central North Carolina. Our certified therapists specialize in the treatment of lymphedema caused by cancer-related surgeries and treatment or vascular insufficiencies. Our therapists take a comprehensive approach to lymphedema therapy and address the underlying source of swelling.
Lymphedema is the swelling of soft tissues as a result of the accumulation of protein rich fluid in the extra cellular spaces. It occurs most frequently in the arm and leg but can also be seen in the head, neck, chest, abdomen and genitalia. Lymphedema can be greatly reduced and managed through Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT). This includes compression bandaging, skin care, and patient-specific physical therapy exercises. Most patients will see significant results within the first two weeks of therapy.
If you are experiencing any of the below symptoms, you might have lymphedema. Remember, early detection is key to preventing and minimizing the effects of lymphedema.
If you are experiencing symptoms of lymphedema, contact us for an evaluation and treatment.
