Lymphedema treatment clinics information and locations in Mexico

Lymphedema is a chronic disease in which the lymphatic fluids become thickened and clogged up, leading to swelling on the arms, legs, genitals, face, and neck. Physical therapy and chiropractic care are the primary treatment for lymphedema.
The lymphatic system is in charge of transporting lymph or lymphatic fluid throughout the body, balancing the fluids in the body, as well as draining out toxins, bacteria, and excess interstitial water and protein. When lymphedema develops, the fluids can't drain properly, resulting in swelling and tissue changes in the affected areas.

Types of lymphedema

Primary lymphedema
Primary lymphedema presents at birth or as a congenital condition in which parts of the lymphatic system are missing, or the lymphatic vessels are underdeveloped or highly developed. There are types of lymphedema that can be associated with syndromes like Turner syndrome and Noonan syndrome.
Secondary lymphedema
Secondary lymphedema is more common as is caused by another disease or injury like cancer, cellulitis, burns, severe crushing, filariasis, obesity, stroke, psoriasis, varicose veins, rheumatoid arthritis, or following a surgical procedure.

Early detection and treatment can help get a more successful outcome, improve the shape and skin of the affected area, as well as prevent its progression. Physical therapy and chiropractic care focus on unclogging lymph nodes and improving circulation throughout the lymphatic system. Your treatment can involve light lymph massage, chiropractic adjustments, electro-lymphatic drainage, and exercise.

Rehabilitation clinics focus on creating a personalized plan that allows international patients to have a therapy session at the clinic and continue their exercises at home. On your next visit to Mexico, whether for medical purposes, work, or vacations, make sure to schedule the therapy you need.
