We are pleased to offer a specialised lymphoedema rehabilitation program. Lymphoedema is the swelling of a limb due to a build up excess fluid in the tissues, and can be caused by problems with, or damage to, the lymphatic system. Untreated, this swelling may become difficult to control.
If you have lymphoedema we can help you. Some signs of lymphoedema are:
An appearance of swelling in the limb
A heavy, tight limb
Pins and needles
Numbness, temperature changes or aches
Indentations in the skin from tight clothing and jewellery
For more information and to obtain a referral to the program, speak with your Doctor, Oncologist or Vascular Surgeon.
