The five pillars of lymphedema treatment in the context of Combined Decongest

For over thirty years, patients suffering from chronic lymphedema have come to the Wittlinger Therapy Center in Walchsee/Tyrol for treatment. Intensive therapy is provided at our competence center in Kaiserwinkl for lymphedema of the arms after breast cancer surgery and lymphedema of the legs after abdominal surgery.

Medical literature documents that roughly one woman out of five will develop arm lymphedema within three years of breast cancer surgery and post-operative radiation therapy. Similar data are known for lymphedema of the legs following abdominal surgery.

Early intensive treatment of edema, as well as prophylaxis and health promotion, are the key services of the Wittlinger Therapy Center.
