Presented By Claudia Steele-Major, PT, CLT-LANA
Lymphedema is an abnormal accumulation of lymph fluid in a body part resulting in swelling.
If you or someone you know has swelling in the legs that cannot be relieved, or if you had cancer surgery with lymph node removal and/or radiation therapy you may have or are at risk to develop lymphedema.
At this free public seminar you will learn risk reduction strategies, current treatment for lymphedema, and how early diagnosis and treatment can help to manage this often unrecognized condition.
