Lymphedema Presentation

This past week in my Cardiopulmonary course (DPT 2nd year fall course) we focused on lymphedema treatment and interventions. We had a lymphedema specialist from St. Luke’s come in and teach the unit, as well as show us some of the techniques/tools utilized in the treatment of lymphedema patients. For those that do not know, lymphedema is swelling of an appendage, often 1 arm or 1 leg, do to damage or  blockage in the lymphatic system. It can become irreversible, however, with appropriate treatment it can be managed and kept at bay. The treatment of lymphedema is within a physical therapist’s scope of practice, but there are continuing education and certification courses that can be taken to become specialized in this area. Below are some photos of the lab day we had on the topic lymphedema management.

One of my fellow PT classmates, Kaitlin Johnston, excited about compression wrapping for lymphedema management during our lab time.

Here is a photo of a type of taping technique that is occasionally utilized in the management of lymphedema.
