Lymphoedema

Lymphoedema is the accumulation of protein rich fluid in tissue space due to a disruption of the lymphatic transport system as occurs following lymph node removal and/or radiation therapy, or due to an increase in fluid production.

Physiotherapy is an essential component to management of Lymphoedemas, and early and appropriate treatment is necessary for long term successful management.

Bondi Junction Physiotherapy is excited to be able to provide Complex Decongestive Physiotherapy for both primary and secondary Lymphoedema patients. This will include manual lymphatic drainage (massage), compressive therapy (including bandaging and garment prescription), exercise, and skin care.
