What is Lymphoedema?
Do you have a swollen limb?
Our bodies have a network of lymph vessels that carry lymph fluid from all our body parts to the veins near the heart. These Lymph vessels are connected to the lymph nodes which help fight infection by filtering out and removing bacteria, dead or abnormal cells before returning the lymph fluid to the blood stream.
When these vessels do not work efficiently, due to lymph node damage or removal, lymph fluid can build up in the tissues and cause swelling.
This is Lymphodema.
Surgical Bliss offers treatments for Lymphoedema by the means of therapist that have been especially trained to get reduce the size of the swelling.
