lymphedema & swelling Treatment

Lymphedema is a collection of fluid that causes swelling in the body—usually in the arms or legs, but it can also include the trunk, head and neck, or genitals.

At TherapySouth, our goal is to improve the quality of your life by decreasing swelling to allow for improved movement and tolerance to your work and daily activities. Exercise is critical to wellness, both during and after your treatment.

Sue, Lymphedema Patient


Sue’s restless leg syndrome and lymphedema has plagued her for years. Her doctor referred her to Therapy South to address her pain and struggles.

“The last ten years have been a whirlwind. I experience a lot of pain with my condition – it has been a nightmare. But I feel treated like royalty while I’m at Therapy South. My therapists have become like sisters to me!”
