Lower Body Lymphedema

Lower Body Lymphedema can include lymphedema in one or both legs, groin, or feet. Unfortunately there is no cure for primary or secondary lymphedema, but our team at Ricky Knowles Hair & Wellness can help you rediscover your mobility by creating a customized lymphedema treatment and compression plan for you.

After a lymphedema diagnosis, it is imperative that you get measured by a certified compression garment fitter. Although there are compression garment shops who claim that they can fit you for a garment, be sure that the fitter has the specialized training necessary to fit you properly in the appropriate garment. Ill fitting garments can cause major setbacks in your progress towards maintaining the condition.

"After surviving Ovarian cancer, I developed secondary lymphedema in both of my legs. It really killed me to not be able to play with my daughter. I was misfit by several other compression garment fitters around town and my condition worsened. Thankfully I found Kristen and she was able to get me back on track. My mobility and confidence are now soaring!"
