Find Relief from Pain and Discomfort

Your lymph nodes play a vital part in removing excess fluid from your body. But when they’re affected by injury, surgery, radiation or even a deformity at birth, you may experience lymphedema. Lymphedema causes an abnormal amount of swelling in your body tissue, such as an arm or leg, that can’t be relieved through elevation.

Lymphedema Services

At MetroWest Medical Center, we offer treatment for lymphedema through complete decongestive therapy (CDT). This treatment consists of:

  • Manual lymph drainage, a pain-free, comfortable, soothing massage technique that mobilizes the fluid
  • Skin care to prevent infections
  • Exercise
  • Compression bandaging

During your therapy, we’ll also teach you ways to manage swelling from lymphedema even after your therapy is completed.
