Through telehealth, we treat nearly all conditions we treat in the clinic. Telehealth is particularly good for helping you adjust your posture and movement patterns so you feel less pain while doing things like telecommuting, cleaning your home, or working in your garden. Unlike during treatments in the clinic, we can see you in your natural environment. The biggest setback of telehealth is obvious. We cannot provide hands-on therapy through the computer.

Lymphedema is an abnormal swelling of a body part, and currently affects 3 million Americans. It occurs when the lymphatic system, a part of your immune system, becomes insufficient and unable to perform its normal function of adequately draining lymph fluid. The swelling is an accumulation of protein-rich fluid, in the superficial tissues. It usually occurs in an arm or a leg, but it may also affect the face, trunk or genitals. Without proper treatment this protein- rich swelling can cause complications such as progressive hardening of the affected tissues, infections or massive swelling.
