Lymphedema—swelling often in the legs and arms—is a common side effect of cancer treatment and occurs when the lymph system is compromised. Injury can happen when lymph nodes are removed during cancer diagnosis and during radiation treatment. There are other causes of lymphedema besides cancer, but it’s the most common.
The Memorial Hospital Rehabilitation Center now offers advanced lymphedema therapy to its patients.
Danika Friedley, PT, DPT, CLT, has completed Klose Training, a renowned lymphedema therapy certification program. The gold standard program— associated with the Foeldi Clinic of Germany—is the most intensive, research-based lymphedema training available in the world, known as Complete Digestive Therapy (CDT).
