The main thing is to find a certified lymphedema therapist with the most up-to-date interventions.
A lymphedema therapist can be a physical therapist or an occupational therapist. There is not much difference in the two providers as long as they are specialized in lymphedema.
Our lymphedema therapist at Vein Specialists of the South is certified by the Academy of Lymphatics. Barbara Jones-Campbell OTR/L, CLT, has been treating lymphedema in Georgia for over 20 years. You can find certified lymphedema therapists at The Academy of Lymphatics website. The Lighthouse Lymphedema Network is also a great place to find a qualified therapist in your area.
Barbara would love to be your lymphedema therapist. Lymphatic care is a holistic approach that needs an overall knowledge and care of patient health.
