All lymphedema therapy is done by a Certified Lymphedema Therapist in a private and comfortable room. In addition to treatment, you will be educated on how to minimize swelling, protect skin and prevent infections. Each patient is given an exercise program tailored to their specific needs that will allow them to help their lymphatic system to work better and remain decongested.
Research shows that Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is the GOLD STANDARD of Lymphedema therapy.
Components of CDT:
Manual Lymph Drainage: a gentle series of strokes that increase and redirect the flow of lymph fluid.
Compression bandaging: special wrapping that maintains the decongestion as well as maintaining tissue pressure.
Education and Exercise: Precautions, Nutrition and Safe Exercise
Once the lymph fluid has been eliminated, our therapist will help you find a correct fitting garment. We are committed to finding the right fit for maximum comfort that allows you to live a quality life.
