Lymphedema Sleeves

Lymphedema (or Lymphoedemarefers to swelling that generally occurs in one of your arms or legs. Sometimes both arms or legs swell.   Lymphedema in arms is often caused by the removal of or damage to your lymph nodes as a part of cancer and/or radiation treatment. and results from a blockage in your lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system. The blockage prevents lymph fluid from draining well, and the fluid buildup leads to swelling.   Compression applied to the arm may reduce lymph flow from the hand, and we offer a variety of sleeves to meet your needs.   Sleeve may be warn on either the right or left arm.
