As part of our mission to provide quality compression therapy garments that help patients manage their lymphedema, Juzo USA supports organizations that also help patients find relief from this chronic condition. We’re proud to announce that we’re extending our support to the Health-Steps organization.
Healthy-Steps (also known as the Lebed Method) is an internationally recognized wellness exercise program based on therapeutic movement that improves range of motion, balance, strength and endurance. The exercises benefit people of all ages with serious illnesses (such as cancer) and chronic conditions (such as lymphedema, diabetes, muscular dystrophy, fibromyalgia).
The organization’s website, www.gohealthysteps.com, offers information about lymphedema, the Healthy-Steps organization, and instructor training programs.
