Types of Treatment
Your lymphatic system plays a large role in your immune function and circulation. If your lymphatic system is compromised, the body will have to work much harder to circulate fluid.
What is Lymphedema?
When the lymphatic vessels are unable to circulate fluids, swelling and fluid buildup occur, which is called lymphedema. This most commonly occurs when lymph nodes are damaged or removed as part of cancer treatment. This is when lymphedema treatment may be required. Although there is no cure for Lymphedema, the condition can be managed to reduce discomfort.
What kinds of Lymphedema diagnoses can lymphedema therapy treat?
- Primary Lymphedema happens on its own, not caused by another condition or injury.
- Secondary Lymphedema often occurs in people who’ve had a surgery during which their lymph nodes were damaged or removed.
What is Lymphedema Treatment?
Your Certified Lymphedema Therapist may utilize various techniques including manual lymph drainage and therapeutic exercises. Additionally, he may recommend the use of compression garments along with other applicable lymphedema treatments.

Here’s what some of our patients had to say
“To Jennifer Gelb, My breathing’s good, I talk out loud, Of this, you can be proud. For you’re the one who got ‘er done, And made it so much fun. Jennifer, thanks for your encouragement, patience, and great smile!”
Without the help of each of my physical therapists I would not have achieved the goals I wanted to reach. Each one had a different method or tidbit of information that contributed to the success of my physical therapy.
Thank you for your patience, encouragement, dedication, and kindness shown to me during my rehab. Three months ago I came into Lake Centre for Rehab in a wheelchair unable to walk and today I walked in! My husband and I are forever grateful!
I have met many athletic trainers and physical therapist professionals in my 40 year athletic career however I have never met anyone with such a knowledgeable experience level, compassion, and interest to help others as Brett.
I was a patient at Lake Centre for Rehab prior to my left total knee replacement and following the surgery as well. The care and therapy that I was given at Highland Lakes was outstanding!
When I began, I had all the typical Parkinson’s symptoms. My voice was weak, I walked with a shuffle, I sat hunched over, and had trouble getting out of a chair. After four times a week and four weeks of hard work, those symptoms have been left in the dust.
After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.
Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.
My husband was skeptical of my choice to use physical therapy to treat my back pain instead of medications. After seeing my results from working with the Lake Centre for Rehab team, my husband is a believer now too.
