Lymphedema is a chronic disease that results in a build up of lymph fluid that occurs when the lymphatic system is either faulty or damaged.
Lymphedema can be managed and greatly improved through Lymphedema Therapy. To begin treatment at J&S Center for Wellness we require an initial consultation. During this 30 minute session you will talk with one of our highly trained Therapists to determine the best treatment option for you and your life style. Your therapist will be discussing the two phases of Complex Decongestive Physiotherapy (CDP), during Phase 1 our goal is to achieve the best possible result in terms of reducing the swelling. Phase 2 focuses on maintaining and further improving the situation with respect to any existing fibrosis and sclerosis. Both of these phases consist of four complementary elements to reach maximum effectiveness in treatment, they include skin care, manual lymph drainage, compression therapy, and exercise therapy. Throughout the session, your therapist will focus on your needs and address your questions.
