Lymphedema Management at New Stride
Lymphedema is a common chronic, debilitating condition in which excess fluid called lymph collects in tissues and causes swelling (edema) in them. Lymphedema (edema due to lymphatic fluid) may occur in the arms or legs. This often happens after lymph vessels or lymph nodes in the axilla (armpit) or groin are removed by surgery or damaged by radiation, impairing the normal drainage of lymphatic fluid.
The goal of New Stride’s Lymphedema Management Program is to improve the overall quality of life for the lymphedema patient. The management of lymphedema is composed of the following treatment:
