Covenant Health will be hosting a community event on Thursday, December 13 at Knipling Education Conference Center from 6-7 p.m. The event is titled, "Oh, My Aching Legs"
Belinda will be talking about the symptoms of Lymphedema and Chronic Venous Insufficiency as well as the confusion between the two. If you have swelling in your legs and ankles and your legs feel heavy and full you could be experiencing symptoms of either Chronic Venous Insufficiency and/or Lymphedema.
Covenant Health has the only Lymphedema/Edema Center in the region. Each patient is evaluated by an Occupational Therapist/Certified Lymphedema Therapist to identify the best treatment. The Knipling Education Conference Center is located on the sixth floor of the West parking garage at the corner of 21st Street and Louisville Avenue.
