They are extra-depth for added stability and support, and they come in a wide variety of colors and styles, including dress shoes and athletic shoes.

Lymphedema is a condition of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system. The lymphatic system returns the interstitial fluid to the thoracic duct and then to the bloodstream, where it is recirculated back to the tissues. Tissues with lymphedema are at risk of infection. We use gradient pump therapy to reduce the swelling found in lymphedema and help alleviate the pain caused by this disease.
