Non–surgical options to prevent lymphedema.
At Horizon Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, we offer a comprehensive lymphedema management program. Our lymphedema specialist begins with a thorough assessment, including chief complaints, medical history, medications, range of motion, strength, skin integrity, limb girth measurements and functional limitations. Based on this assessment and your doctor's recommendations, she will develop an individualized treatment plan.
Our certified therapists use the most current and research driven methods to treat lymphedema and to educate the patient on the long term management of it.
Restorative interventions return patients to their previous levels of physical and vocational functioning using the therapists talents at maximizing range of motion, strength and overall endurance.
