This study found that lymphedema treatment significantly reduced pain intensity in lipedema patients.
This article provides a description of lipedema and presents a clinical evaluation of 119 lipedema patients.
This article discusses the difficulties lipedema patients face, including misdiagnosis, unresponsiveness to diet and exercise, physical pain, and distress over the appearance of their legs. A case study follows a 21-year old patient with lipedema who was successfully treated with liposuction and compression.
This pilot study examined whether whole body cyclic pneumatic hypobaric compression could relieve pain in patients with Adiposis dolorosa (AD). The researchers used a touch-free method called the Cyclic Variations in Altitude Conditioning (CVAC), which they concluded may help relieve pain from AD, and possibly from other chronic pain disorders as well.
