Shine a Light on Lymphoedema

At Platinum Physio, our highly skilled Lymphoedema Physiotherapists are able to assess and treat lymphoedema, as well as providing advice and early intervention treatment for clients who are undergoing or have completed their cancer treatment.

Gillian Buckley and Carlie Chilko are the Lymphoedema Physiotherapists at our East Brighton clinic, and Dani Feil is at our Caulfield Clinic.

Lymphoedema may occur as a result of cancer treatment, a primary (genetic) cause, or secondary to other causes including trauma, surgery, or cellulitis (infection).

Your Lymphoedema Physiotherapist at Platinum Physio can provide you with specific and targeted guidance to assist you in reaching your health goals.

Would you like to be involved in some research into Lymphoedema?

Susan Witt (Lymphoedema Occupational Therapist) is seeking support from the lymphoedema community with data collection for her PhD at Flinders University, Adelaide under Professor Neil Piller. This is a questionnaire to gather information about how the climate impacts on lymphoedema. It has been translated into multiple languages.
