Lymphedema is the abnormal collection of excessive tissue proteins, edema, chronic inflammation, and fibrosis. Manual Lymphatic Therapy consists of manipulation and facilitation of lymphatic fluid flow from an area of congested lymph toward a normal lymphatic flow. A series of sequential manual techniques in combination with sequential therapeutic exercises as well as compression and skin care techniques are included. At Bedford Outpatient Therapy Specialists we have a trained Lymphedema Therapist on staff.
