Lymphedema

What is Lymphedema? 

Lymphedema is a condition caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system, resulting in fluid buildup and swelling. Areas commonly affected by this condition include the arms, legs, breast, face, neck, throat or abdomen.

Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) Treatment includes:

  • Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) techniques which include skin massage and stimulation
  • Skin care/hygiene techniques
  • Exercises to alleviate symptoms
  • Compression bandages and garments

Our patients have been diagnosed with:

  • Primary lymphedema
  • Lymphedema secondary to cancer treatment
  • Lymphedema secondary to trauma
  • Lymphedema secondary to venous insufficiency
  • Venous stasis and other venous disease
  • Wounds of acute or chronic nature 

We have two certified lymphedema therapists (CLT) who have been specialty trained to address the specific needs of patients diagnosed with this condition. We provide treatment at the Pen Bay Physicians Building Outpatient Physical Therapy clinic on the Pen Bay Medical Center campus.

Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Pelvic floor rehab is used to treat a wide range of problems that occur for individuals with pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor dysfunction includes pain from weakened or tightened muscles of the pelvic floor, or if there is an impairment of the pelvic area or irritation of the surrounding tissue. Pelvic floor rehab can be used to treat, and in some cases cure, these symptoms and dysfunction.

Pelvic floor rehabilitation can help manage:

  • Bowel/bladder dysfunction
  • Effects of pregnancy
  • Abdominal, back and/or pelvic pain
  • Effects of surgery (prostatectomy/hysterectomy)

Therapy may include:

  • External and internal manual techniques
  • Biofeedback
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Therapeutic exercise

Physician referral is required for appointments.
