Lymphoedema Management

Lymphoedema presents as a swelling of a limb or other body parts when the lymphatic system is not functioning normally. Our lymphoedema therapist has completed specialised training and will create a customised treatment plan specially designed for you or your patient’s needs.
Our goal for treatment is to ensure the individual is able to manage their condition effectively and as independently as possible, whilst also maintaining quality of life.

Our lymphoedema services include:

  • Patient education
  • Circumferential measurements of the affected limb to monitor oedema reduction*
  • Manual lymphatic drainage massage
  • Prescription of a personalised exercise program
  • Skin and soft tissue assessment and advice
  • Scar management and desensitization
  • Multi-layer bandaging to reduce the size of the limb in severe cases
  • Prescription of a compression garment if required
  • Prescription and demonstration of aides and devices to assist with donning and doffing garments
  • Referral to clinically recognised lymphoedema support groups
  • We also offer assessment and treatment for all oedema and venous related conditions. To arrange an appointment, please contact us directly. No referral necessary.
