What is the Relation between Exercise and Lymphoedema?

Recent studies have shown how Exercise is effective in reducing the risk of developing lymphoedema as well as reducing the risk, for those already affected by, of a worsening in the condition.

Exercise by people affected by lymphoedema has often been compared to exercise by people who suffered a heart attack. In both cases, by going through a gradual and supervised programme of exercising the patient reduces the risk of a recurring of a similar event in the future
