Lymphedema Therapy

The rehabilitation services department at Horizon Health provides therapy for lymphedema, or the swelling of the arms and legs. Horizon Health has a certified lymphedema therapist on staff that will assess your individual needs to improve swell and minimize discomfort.

Our lymphedema treatment services were developed in response to a great need of care in Paris, IL. Before our department was opened, patients had to travel to Terre Haute, IN for lymphedema care. Now, they have a facility that delivers high quality healthcare right in their neighborhood.

Treatment involves manual techniques in combination with a specialized wrapping technique that improves the body's ability to remove fluid. A certified lymphedema therapist will recommend appropriate compression garments to maintain proper lymphatic drainage.

 Causes of Lymphedema:

  • Cancer
  • Previous surgeries
  • Infections
  • Radiation treatment
