Lymphedema is a
collection of fluid that causes swelling (edema) in the arms and legs.
Normally, lymph nodes filter fluid as it flows through them, trapping
bacteria, viruses and other foreign substances, which are then destroyed
by special while blood cells known as lymphocytes. Without normal lymph
drainage, fluid can build up in the affected arm or leg, and lymphedema
can develop. We are proud to offer lymphedema therapy provided by
certified lymphedema therapists with extensive clinical experience.

for patients recovering from back, hip or knee surgery by allowing
patients to move earlier without pain, they can begin recovery more
quickly. Pilates can also help prevent many orthopaedic injuries, as
most injuries are caused by overuse or poor movement patterns, which
cause pain. Pilates is unique in that it is a neuromuscular exercise,
which means that it reeducates your body’s movement patterns to resolve
poor or pain-causing movements.
