Complete Decongestive Therapy
This is the gold standard of treatment for lymphedema and includes manual lymph drainage (MLD), compression with bandages or garments, exercise and education.
A successful treatment program consists of all four of these components. Individual components may be covered under physical therapy, or under a wellness program.
Physical and/or Occupational Therapy
As physical therapists, we diagnose dysfunction and create a treatment plan based on your individual impairments.
Occupational therapists focus on the things you want and need to do in your daily life, including self care, activities of daily living, working, and many of the other things you love and want to do.
Treatment with all therapies optimally begins immediately after you receive your cancer diagnosis and before the medical treatment begins. This helps us to determine your baseline, and helps you build or maintain strength going into treatment, and helps keep you in better shape throughout the course of your treatment. It involves a lot of education to help you optimize your recovery and help to prevent further dysfunction and, potentially, lymphedema.
We offer the best technology to further assist our patients with lymphedema, fibrosis and stubborn scar tissue with the Lymphatouch device and the Riancorp LTU-904 low level laser. The LTU-904 is the only laser FDA-approved to treat lymphedema.
A wellness program is a personalized program designed to help you progress your level of fitness to best fit your lifestyle needs.
Many patients have to conclude skilled physical therapy before they have achieved all of his or her personal goals, simply because of insurance limitations. If you have concluded skilled treatment, but are still looking for more guided help, a wellness program with an oncology specialist is the optimal next step. You may want to continue to work on specific goals, or you may just need some guidance as to how to get back to your preferred exercise program but don't know where to start.
Wellness classes at Oasis include small group classes led by a physical therapist to promote strengthening, flexibility and endurance, as well as balance training. There are also one-on-one fitness training sessions offered as well.
I am now offering a limited line of ready to wear compression sleeves and stockings, compression and fashion bras, and more.
