Lymphedema physical therapy
The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and nodes carrying protein-rich fluid. It functions as the body’s waste filtration system. Lymphedema is a chronic condition that occurs when this system cannot adequately drain the fluid. Lymphedema causes swelling, which can be painful and impair mobility.
