Improve function and wellbeing on our personalised lymphoedema rehabilitation program
Our lymphoedema rehabilitation program is led by a specially qualified therapist and supported by our multidisciplinary team of exercise physiologists, physiotherapists, dietitians, rehabilitation specialists and occupational therapists.
This program is suitable for individuals:
- with a diagnosis of primary or secondary lymphoedema
- who have persistent swelling which has been extensively investigated by their GP (in the absence of a diagnosis)
- who have been treated for cancer and have early stages of lymphoedema or are at risk of developing lymphoedema due to radiation or lymph node dissection.
Lymphoedema rehabilitation programs are available as either inpatient programs or day programs.
