Lymphedema Treatment for Chronic Swelling

Lymphedema is a chronic, life-long condition that causes progressive swelling of an area of the body (arm, leg, or face) that is experiencing lymphatic dysfunction. Lymphedema may be caused by a variety of reasons including radiation therapy, surgery, trauma, or illness and it can be managed.

Specially trained physical and/or occupational therapists work with patients to provide comprehensive treatment to decrease swelling and mange it long-term. Treatment can involve a variety of methods including:

  • Comprehensive evaluations to determine individualized treatment plans and therapeutic goals.
  • Work with doctors to recommend lymphedema management products such as compression garments, lymphedema pumps, and other specialized lymphedema products.
  • Provide specialized and individualized treatment that may include therapeutic exercise, manual lymph drainage, multi-component bandaging, skin and wound care, and custom home programs.
  • Train and educate patients and their caregivers to manage lymphedema long-term

Your Story is our Story - Glens Falls Hospital "I woke in the middle of the night with chest pain and saw Dr. Hogan. He explained everything that was going on and that I needed a stent. I was completely at ease with his diagnosis and plan and had the surgery with Dr. Bashir the following morning. My experience was excellent." Gary Nelson Queensbury, NY
