Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Lymphatic edema could appear in the extremities, in the breasts or anywhere else in the body and restrict function by decreased flexibility and motility, limited extremities' range of motion, feelings of fatigue and heavy swollen limbs, edematous skin changes, sensations of uneasiness and impaired mobility accompanied by psychological stress (due to the chronic nature of the illness and dependency on medical care). We present four case studies that demonstrate integrated management and a combined approach of treatment for patients with lymphatic edema, including aspects of physiotherapy, as part of an integrated rehabilitation service.
