Types of Treatment
Lymphedema is a painful condition resulting in persistent swelling of an arm or leg due to a blockage in your lymphatic system, an important part of your immune and circulatory systems. It is most commonly caused by removal or damage of lymph nodes during cancer treatment.
TexPTS Lymphedema Treatment offers outpatient care provided by expert physical therapists. Treatments are designed to reduce pain, swelling, and other symptoms through a combination of special therapies and exercises. The earlier lymphedema is treated, the better the results.
What to expect during your Lymphedema Treatment at TexPTS:
- You will be assessed by an expert physical therapist who is specifically trained in Lymphedema Therapy.
- Your therapist will evaluate your strength and range of motion and take measurements of your affected and non-affected areas.
- A customized plan will be created just for you that begins with instruction on how the program works, your specific diagnosis and how to manage and further prevent Lymphedema.
- A session may consist of specialized massage, skin and nail care, compression bandaging, continuing education, and a home exercise program to fit your individual needs.
TexPTS will contact your insurance carrier for you during your initial appointment to obtain detailed information about your coverage. Medicare and most insurance companies cover much of the cost of Lymphedema Therapy.
Here’s what some of our patients had to say...
Even when there is not a pandemic, I think I would choose to do telehealth physical therapy because I’ve gotten great results in less time with a more flexible schedule. The ease of telehealth took away my excuses for not attending, which was half the battle.
Buck asks insightful questions and is a good listener. I feel we have established a clear picture of the issues, and continue to update this as the treatment evolves. Buck has assigned PT exercises which I see as insightful and get right to the core of the issues.
Courteous staff, excellent PTs, flexible scheduling. I highly recommend TexPTS. Excellent outcome with my shoulder therapy. Injuries happen; when anyone in my family needs a PT in the future, they’re headed to TexPTS!
