Understanding Lymphedema – South Portland

Lymphedema, swelling caused by the buildup of fluid under the skin, is a common side effect of some cancer treatments. Lymphedema can result in pain, reduced mobility, feeling of heaviness or tightness, and increased risk for infections.

Kirsten Twaite, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Certified Lymphedema Therapist, will discuss the importance of managing swelling, the four therapies used in treating lymphedema, and why it can be very helpful to see a physical therapist if you have lymphedema.

This class is offered in collaboration with Jade Integrated Health and is open to the public.
