WHAT IS LYMPHEDEMA?
PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR LYMPHEDEMA
Lymphedema is a life-long condition requiring skilled management with the proper tools. Lymphedema does not have to define you. Research shows that the gold standard of care for treating lymphedema is to see a Lymphology Association of North America (LANA)-certified physical therapist for regular evaluation, monitoring, and treatment with manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) and compression with garments.
Here at Carlson Procare, we have two certified lymphedema therapists located in our New Milford office. Treating lymphedema takes a whole-body approach using numerous tools and techniques including manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), compression therapy with garments and bandages, gentle exercise, and education for both the patient and their family. These complex physical therapy techniques are a critical part of the care for any lymphedema patient.
Contact our New Milford office today for your Lymphedema evaluation.

I love a good thrill and live a fairly active lifestyle, enjoying mountain biking, snowboarding, and other outdoor sports. I get injured from time to time. Fortunately, any time I do get injured I go see my physician at CARLSON PROCARE, they are the best!! Provides great care and insights that help get me on my feet in no time!

Great therapists, staff, and facility! They work together as a team so well and create a welcoming and comfortable environment. They make the entire process simple and uncomplicated. I 100% recommend this Physical Therapy Team.
CARLSON PROCARE helped me from the day I was injured, all the way until I was fully recovered. Not only are they great at what they do, but they are also a caring group of people. I fully recommend them for anyone in need of physical therapy.
