Lymphoedema is one of the most neglected conditions in modern society. It is described as a chronic swelling of a limb usually lasting for more than 3 months.  Whilst it’s not curable it can be controlled with the specialist intervention and treatment techniques which are evidence based and proven to work to alleviate the devastating effects of living with this debilitating condition.

 Chronic oedema or lymphoedema is a major health problem which is reaching endemic proportions. Often underdiagnosed with a vast variability of care. Often a consequence of other medical conditions but most commonly secondary to cancer survivorship, increased ageing and post op complications.

Lymphoedema does not discriminate, there are no limitations; it can affect anyone at any time. The consequences of which can be life limiting; but early diagnosis and treatment can prevent hospital admissions, cellulitis and further health complications. 

Our physiotherapist at St Helens and WA Physiotherapy have undertaken an intensive and specialist lymphoedema training to provide the best treatments to you, when you need it, without the need for referral from your medical team.
