Lymphedema Management at UPMC Centers for Rehab Services

Lymphedema is a condition in which swelling (edema) occurs from abnormal accumulation of protein-rich lymph fluid in the space between cells in the body.

Causes of lymphedema may include:

  • Lymph node removal
  • Injury to the lymphatic vessels
  • Radiation
  • Infection
  • Obesity
  • A deficiency in the lymphatic system

Our highly trained therapists — many of whom are certified by the Lymphology Association of North America — are experts in the treatment of lymphedema, using the complete decongestive therapy method.

The components of this treatment method include:

  • Manual lymph drainage
  • Compression bandaging
  • Exercise
  • Self-management
