Compression: Commonly, physical therapists can help with massage and compressive wraps, sequential pumps and compressive garments will aid in maintenance. Don't expect a cure...And don't neglect identifying the cause.

Options: Most lymphedema can be improved with physical therapy/compression. There is a new technique of lymph node transfer that can dramatically improve certain cases. It is microsurgical transfer of nodes to a draining basin to improve symptoms and hopefully grow more channels. Call 321-841-7090 as the institute of microsurgery at orlando health now offers this!
