Lymphoedema Relief With Bowen Therapy At Setter’s Health Centre Townsville

What Is Lymphoedema? (or lymphedema – U.S. spelling)

Lymphoedema is swelling caused by problems with the lymphatic system… Any part of the body can be affected by lymphoedema, with a tendency to target the arms and legs.

Note: Over 300,000 Australians will experience lymphoedema at any given time.

What Is The Lymphatic System?

The lymphatic system is a network of drainage tubes throughout the human body. This drains this fluid called lymph from the tissues and returns the fluid back into the bloodstream.

When this system is not working properly… Lymphoedema can occur.

Women who have undergone surgery and radiotherapy for treatment of breast cancer are particularly susceptible to lymphoedema of the arm and, sometimes, the adjacent chest wall on the affected side. Men and women who have had surgery and radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer of the prostate, bowel or reproductive systems are also prone to lymphoedema of the legs or groin areas.
