Perfect day for the Share the Care golf tourney !!!!
Wonderfully written article of exactly what Hope Campbell and I are doing in this lovely new workplace of ours❤️❤️❤️
Dr. Granzow continues to go above and beyond in this field !
I truly hope that I get to see him present again soon, but for now at least I get to share such fantastic info about this job that I love.
What makes Dr. Granzow’s lymphedema treatment system unique is his focus on matching the type of lymphedema treatment and surgery to each patient’s condition to produce the maximum effectiveness. The fact is, no single procedure is effective for all cases of lymphedema. Learn more about non-surgical lymphedema therapy on our website.
Informative article from Breastcancer.org we thought we would pass along:)
Also hoping everyone is having a wonderful and warm day ❤️
There are steps you can take to reduce lymphedema risk. Learn more today.
The Guru strikes again:) always posts fantastic articles and this one is no exception!
Research indicates that the transport of lymph fluid and proteins from swollen areas increases during and after exercises. Studies show that lymph flow increased five-fold in the first 15 minutes and two to three fold during the remaining time of a two hour exercise protocol. In addition to the benefits to the lymphatic system, it is known that muscle activity and diaphragmatic breathing also have a considerable impact on venous blood returning from the extremities back to the heart, which in turn also positively affects fluid management within the interstitial spaces
This is quite a neat representation of how we are connected! Great dance moves too 😉
FASCIA :: EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED ::
This video is a great visual of how our fascial system functions. Fascia is the biological fabric that holds us together, the connective tissue network of our body.
I’ve found that this system is one of the missing links in our current Western chronic pain treatment model. When it comes to treating pain, as a myofascial release therapist, I look for the pain and then look elsewhere for the cause. This video is a great way to understand what we mean when we use the term “kinetic chain”. We can see how there is a line of pull to each movement. Often when there are fascial restrictions, it cause is tremendous pressure in or body as well as pull our entire structure out of alignment.
Thanks Kiyan Forootan for creating this video and your brilliant 3D work!
Mark your calendars, and see you there!!!

Important information on infections that can occur in lymphedematous tissues.
There are numerous reasons why patients with lymphedema are at an increased risk for infections. Normally the body is protected by a fine acid layer on the surface of the skin, which prevents bacteria and other pathogens from entering. However, the skin in lymphedema tends to be dry and scaly, causi...
TRUE or FALSE?
The answer to yesterday's trivia is: TRUE! Decongestive exercises for the upper and lower extremities are most beneficial and effective if compression garments (gloves, sleeves, stockings) or compression bandages are worn during the performance of the exercises - read here why http://www.lymphedemablog.com/2011/01/06/decongestive-and-breathing-exercises-for-lymphedema/

Commercial airline travel is fast, safe and convenient and in the vast majority of cases without any harmful health effects. However, the aircraft environment and other airline-travel related factors may cause certain stresses on the individual affected by lymphedema or the population at risk to dev...

Collaboration between two Stanford labs has resulted in the discovery of a molecular cause for lymphedema and the first possible drug treatment for it.
