What is Lymphedema?
Lymphedema, sometimes referred to as lymphatic dysfunction, is a condition in which the arms and legs become swollen with fluids that are typically stored in the bloodstream. While lymphedema generally only causes swelling in the extremities, other parts of the body may be affected too. Lymphedema can either be a hereditary condition or be caused as a result of cancer and radiation therapy. If you are suffering from the effects of lymphedema and wish to receive treatment in your own home, we encourage you to Contact us at your earliest convenience and schedule your private consultation with one of our expert medical professionals.
How Do I Know if I Have Lymphedema?
Common symptoms of lymphedema that many of our patients find they experience include:
- Changes in the texture of the skin
- Skin discoloration
- Infected open wounds
- Limited range in motion
- Heaviness and achiness in the extremities
What Causes Lymphedema?
Lymphedema is caused by complications with the lymphatic system, or the system responsible for draining toxic fluids from the body. When the lymphatic system doesn't work properly, the filtering lymph fluid never drains and parts of the body begin to swell. Patients can either be genetically predisposed to getting lymphedema or develop lymphedema as a result of cancer and radiation therapy treatments.
What Treatments are Available for Lymphedema?
There are many treatments for lymphedema that our expert medical team members can provide for you, including:
- Multilayer compression therapy
- Specialized dressings and therapies
- Incision and drainage
- Minimally invasive and microsurgery
How Much Does Treatment for Lymphedema Cost?
The cost of your lymphedema treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. StrideWoundCare is also happy to offer financing options through CareCredit® that allow you to pay for your treatments at your convenience.
