Caring for Lymphedema
Submitted On 2008-07-11

Lymphedema is the abnormal accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the tissues causing swelling of a limb or body part - and it affects men, women and children. It is estimated there are currently 5 million people in the U.S. alone who suffer with Lymphedema, and they often go undiagnosed, untreated and mistreated. This newsletter, written by LANA-certified physical therapist Sonnie Blocki, provides resources and information about Lymphedema and swelling, as well as regular case studies.

Testimonial for Caring for Lymphedema

"I am so grateful my friend recommended you. I hesitated before coming because I thought 'what could anyone do'. I tried elevating my leg, etc., which didn't help a great deal. I felt I would have to live with it. Finally, I broke down and called. Thank God I did. My condition has improved 100% since going to you. My legs have gone down in size significantly, which means I can buy pants that fit the rest of my body. I usually would have to buy pants that would fit my left leg. I am a short person so when I would hem my pant legs the length of my left leg was always different from the right one. Now they are pretty close in size. You explained what I had and how it was different from other patients you were treating, answered all my questions no matter how silly they were and most important you made me feel comfortable. You taught me how to take care of my legs if I would have a 'flare up.' You are very compassionate and understanding which shows by the way you treated me when I came for my treatments. I have and will continue to recommend people to United Physical Therapy. You are the greatest!!!!"
