Lymphedema Therapy

 
 
 
Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid that causes abnormal swelling of the tissues. Your lymphatic system plays a large role in immune function and circulation. It consists of lymph vessels located under the skin, which connect to lymph nodes located in your neck, armpits, and groin. Large protein molecules are collected as the vessels move fluid out of the tissues, waste products, bacteria, and dead cells. Waste products are carried to the lymph nodes to be broken down and eliminated, while the protein rich fluid is transported back to the heart to rejoin circulation. Read more
