Our Continuum of Care

Southern California Lymphedema Management Program

Controlling the Swelling

Lymphedema causes debilitating swelling of the arms, legs, head, or torso. Much like diabetes or high blood pressure, there is no cure for this condition, but there is hope.

Casa Colina's Lymphedema Management Program helps individuals with lymphedema control their symptoms over the long term, allowing them to regain limb control and resume everyday activities.

To participate in this program, patients must have stable cardiac and renal functions and must be fully committed to managing their condition. All treatment is provided by certified lymphedema therapists, many with advanced competency in head and neck cancers.

This program is recommended if you have Primary or Secondary Lymphedema due to:

  • Milroy's disease
  • Meige disease
  • Late-onset lymphedema
  • Surgery that involved the lymph nodes/vessels
  • Cancer cells or tumors near the lymph nodes/vessels
  • Infection or injury of the lymph nodes/vessels
  • Venous stasis

Patients in our Lymphedema Management Program benefit from a treatment plan that follows the highest standards of care.

  • Manual lymphatic drainage
  • Compression bandaging and garments
  • Compression pump as needed
  • Skin care
  • Techniques to reduce infection
  • K-taping as needed
  • Wellness program lymphedema exercise group
  • Patient and caregiver education

Through treatment, you'll gain a better understanding of lymphedema, which will in turn lead to improved limb function and a healthier quality of life.
