Specialized decongestive therapy program helps cancer patients
Blount Memorial Total Rehabilitation offers – in conjunction with the Blount Memorial Cancer Center – an effective lymphedema therapy program for cancer patients. Lymphedema often is a disabling and painful condition caused by the build up of lymph fluid in the soft tissues of the limbs. It is particularly common in people receiving chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgical treatment for breast or gynecological cancers or lymphoma.
A certified lymphatic therapist provides the highly specialized complex decongestive therapy required to effectively treat and manage lymphedema.
