Graybeal Orthopedic has a TN Licensed Orthotist and has vast experience treating lymphedema patients. Lymphedema is a chronic but treatable disease that results in an accumulation of lymph fluid (swelling) in parts of the body where lymph nodes or lymphatic vessels are damaged or inadequate. Proper treatment of lymphedema is manual lymphatic drainage therapy performed by a certified lymphatic drainage therapist in conjunction with bandaging, compression daytime and nighttime garments and diaphragmatic breathing.
Compression garments help to keep swelling down, improve circulation and prevent the re-accumulation of lymph fluid. By taking preventative steps now, you are bettering your chances to continue your normal activities and live a worry-free lifestyle.
