Improve function and wellbeing with our personalised lymphoedema rehabilitation program
Our lymphoedema rehabilitation program is designed to improve function, range of movement and wellbeing for people living with the symptoms of lymphoedema.
This rehabilitation program is led by a 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
Our lymphoedema rehabilitation is available as either an inpatient program or a day program.
