Living with lymphedema is challenging. Without proper management, the condition progresses, limiting motion, strength, and stability. Because lymphedema is usually caused by bodily trauma such as lymph node removal, surgery, radiation, pr infection, patients may not be in the best of health when they first start treatment. They need hands on physical therapy, support, and encouragement to keep the condition under control.Jennifer Fernandez and Michelle Haas are both certified lymphedema therapists at MarinHealth. In this podcast, they cover the difference between primary and secondary lymphedema, the types of therapies they provide, and the importance of personalizing treatment to the individual.
