Lymphedema is swelling of a body part due to accumulation of protein-rich fluid (lymph) in the tissues. The Lymphatic system is part of our circulatory system and has important functions for our immune system. It also removes wastes and fluid from our tissues, so if it is not functioning properly, swelling can result.
Appointments for lymphedema therapy at HealthPoint Rehabilitation are through physician referral. The treatment is covered by most insurance plans. As an added convenience for patients, insurance forms are filed by HealthPoint Rehabilitation.
