Lymphedema treatment consists of therapy by a licensed professional trained in exercise, massage and reduction, which are the recommended first steps before the use of compression garments. In addition to compression garments, Custom Care Solutions also offer custom bandaging supplies based on your treatment plan.
Compression Physical Therapy
Compression Bandage Therapy
Edema is swelling caused by excess fluid trapped in the body’s tissues. Lymphedema is a type of edema that can cause localized swelling due to a compromised lymphatic system. Unlike edema, which may go away on its own, Lymphedema must be treated through a series of therapy sessions and maintained with proper use of compression garments minimizing further complications. Managing your condition is crucial in order to reduce discomfort, protect the integrity of the skin, reduce the possibility of infection and other side effects, to keep the affected area close to its original size.
Please contact your therapist for more information about your treatment. Custom Care Solutions is proud to work with many lymphedema therapists’ offices throughout the Northwest (including Alaska) to support your ongoing treatment.
