Augmentative and Alternative Communication or AAC
Augmentative and alternative communication or AAC devices are used by people who, some or all the time, cannot rely on their speech. AAC may include any existing speech or vocalizations, gestures, manual signs, and aided communication. Speech-generating devices are another modality which may be used to enhance and individual’s communication abilities. AAC devices are used to help persons with communication difficulties related to ALS, stroke, head injury or other neurological event. A Shannon Neuro Rehab speech-language pathologist will assess and make treatment recommendations to maximize communication for each patient.
Lymphedema is a condition of abnormal swelling that can occur in any body part when the lymphatic system does not work properly. This can occur because of cancer, cancer treatment (radiation, surgical removal of lymph nodes), birth defects, surgery, trauma, etc.
Management/treatment is often conservative and requires a combination of the following:
- Self-bandaging or compression wrapping
- Manual lymphatic drainage
- Skin care
- Low intensity exercises
- Use of vasopneumatic pump
- Fitting for compression garments
