Good News! Lymphedema Is Manageable!
Many people experience lymphedema---the buildup of protein rich lymphatic fluid in an extremity causing swelling, pain, and limitation in function. The certified lymphedema specialists at Bethesda will insure that you understand and learn how to manage this chronic condition and regain function.
Bethesda Health offers a FREE post-surgical Breast Cancer screening and exercise session in our Outpatient Rehabilitation Department. This session is to help educate individuals who are experiencing shoulder problems or edema (arm swelling) that can occur after breast surgery. Individuals can greatly benefit from our screening session within the first few months following surgery.
There are five simple steps to successful management.
After careful assessment, you begin a series of treatment sessions. The more dedicated you are to treatment, the better the results.
