Lymphoedema is a condition that causes the body’s tissues to swell due to excessive amounts of protein-rich fluid. Cancer treatments such as radiotherapy, chemotherapy and the removal of lymph nodes, among others, are the most common causes of lymphoedema.
However, we don’t discount the fact that there are many other factors that could lead to this condition, including:
Lymphoedema doesn’t suddenly occur, but instead develops over time. Its early signs include the tightening of jewellery and clothing, a feeling of heaviness or tightness, visible swelling and aching.
If neglected, this condition may lead to a slew of health problems such as swollen limbs (Edematous), scarring (Fibrosis), Cellulitis, limited range of movement, fatigue, discomfort and pain.
Qualified therapists approach Lymphoedema with a wide range of treatment options, which include manual lymphatic drainage, laser, physio touch, and a pneumatic compression LX9 compression pump.
They also provide patients with fitting garments and apply layered lymphoedema bandage to reduce the pain and swelling.
Cost: $120, 1 hour.
