Lymphedema Therapy

The Outpatient Lymphedema Therapy Program at Orange Regional Medical Center helps people who are experiencing abnormal swelling of a body part (including but not limited to neck, arm, leg, breast, abdomen) caused by an excessive buildup of lymph fluid. Our Norton-trained, certified lymphedema specialist uses a non-invasive program known as Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) to treat lymphedema. Lymphedema is a chronic health condition that occurs most commonly after surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer. Other causes of lymphedema include infection, obesity, venous insufficiency, trauma, as well as recovery from joint replacement and other surgeries. Symptoms of lymphedema include swelling of the limbs, heaviness and limitation of movement, repeated infections, skin thickening or hardening, and discomfort. If you have any of the above risk factors for lymphedema and notice unusual swelling of any kind, seek medical care right away.

CDT is a comprehensive treatment for lymphedema that includes the following:

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) — MLD is a gentle, hands-on treatment of both the affected body part and adjacent selected areas. MLD can move lymph fluid from the swollen region into parts of the lymphatic system that are still functioning. From there, the fluid is transported throughout the circulatory system.

Compression Bandaging — After MLD, the treated extremity is wrapped with layers of compression bandages. Bandages help prevent the reaccumulation of lymphatic fluid.

Therapeutic Exercise — Exercise programs are designed to strengthen muscles and improve circulation and function of the lymph system.

Skin and Nail Care — People with lymphedema are at high risk for infection, especially cellulitis. Signs of cellulitis include redness, swelling, pain, and fever. See your doctor right away if you have any of these symptoms.

Compression Garment Fitting — Once the affected body part is decongested, you will be referred to a supplier to be fitted for a medical compression garment, such as an arm sleeve or thigh high. These garments, worn daily, help maintain the positive results achieved through lymphedema treatment.

Personalized Education in Self-Care — Our lymphedema specialist will teach you how to maintain your treatment progress through at-home techniques, including self-bandaging, self-massage, exercise, and skin and nail care.

To decrease the risk of developing and flare ups of lymphedema symptoms, the following precautions must be taken:

• Avoid extreme hot and cold climates
• Avoid hot baths, showers, sauna, and hot tubs
• Avoid insect bites
• Avoid manicures and pedicures
• Avoid skin punctures, needle punctures, cuts and acupuncture to the swollen limb
• Avoid pet scratches
• No tattoos on affected extremity
• Avoid high impact sports
• Avoid blood pressure cuffs on the affected limb
• Avoid tight clothes, rings, or watches on the affected limb
• Avoid high fat or high salt diet
• Avoid deep tissue massage or Swedish massage

Once you are diagnosed with lymphedema, we will need a written prescription from your doctor, and, depending on your insurance, preauthorization to evaluate and treat your symptoms. Our staff will work with you, your family, and your physician to develop a comprehensive and customized plan of care. Every patient’s symptoms and response to treatment are different, so the specific course of treatment varies by individual. Generally, you should expect to be treated five times a week for at least two weeks. Registration is required for your initial evaluation. Please call
845-333-7300 to schedule your appointment.
