Targeted Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is a chronic condition that causes swelling of the arms and legs. This is common in people who have undergone certain surgeries, infections and injuries that affect the lymph fluid. Lymphedema treatment can be done for post-injury and postoperative swelling or edema.

There are many ways our physical and occupational therapists can help you reduce swelling and control the pain associated with this condition. A few modalities that can be integrated into your treatment plan include:

  • Massage techniques, including manual lymph drainage, that can encourage reduction of lymph fluid in your arms or legs
  • Exercises that move the affected limb in ways that encourage drainage to make everyday activities easier
  • Wrapping and compression techniques that can reduce pain and swelling

Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapy can customize an lymphedema therapy treatment plan just for you with three convenient locations in Eastlake, Rancho Del Rey, and East County.

Comprehensive Approach to Patient Care

We want you to feel relief while you’re working directly with a member of the MOPT team, but we also want you to feel relief after your appointment. That’s why we offer a comprehensive approach to patient care.

In addition to offering traditional therapy services that are targeted to the limbs that are affected, we also offer other services to help ease the symptoms of lymphedema. Aquatic therapy can be a great way to get your limbs moving if you struggle with land-based exercises, while acupuncture has the ability to reduce swelling.

Every patient, no matter what treatment you’re receiving, will also receive ongoing education about their condition, as well as guidance in exercises and stretches that can be done at home to experience relief in between appointments.

You can learn more about lymphedema therapy in Chula Vista by contacting MOPT. Give us a call or fill out our online form and a member of our staff would be happy to answer your questions.

Joe has been fantastic! I’ve been to 4 different offices and I already am feeling so much better and learning a lot. My fav thing is that Joe answers all my questions about what I can or can’t do in the gym and on my own. I am so thankful for everyone in the office from the front desk to the aids. And Mikey has so much experience and knowledge.
