Lymphedema is the swelling of the leg, arm, or other body part, which is caused by the accumulation of lymph fluid. It is a common post-cancer surgery or post-radiation condition, and can have significant consequences if left untreated.

Join physical therapist Paula Jones as she discusses a variety of therapeutic exercises and manual treatments which can help treat and prevent flare-ups of lymphedema.
