Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Training
This specific training helps patients regain the basic skills they need to perform daily living activities. This may include learning to dress, feed or bathe themselves again after a serious illness, injury or surgery using compensation techniques or special adaptive equipment.
Chronic swelling usually occurs in an area of the body where the lymphatic system is compromised and is most often due to surgery, injury, radiation treatments or circulation problems. Ongoing treatments can help eliminate chronic swelling in the arms or legs through guided exercise, specialized massage, bandaging techniques, home programs, activity modification and education. Management of chronic/slow healing wounds of the legs is often done in conjunction with lymphedema treatment.
Therapists provide treatments to the arm or hand using heat or cold applications, electrical current or sound waves.
