SPECIALIZING IN COMPLETE DECONGESTIVE THERAPY:
THE GOLD STANDARD TREATMENT FOR LYMPHEDEMA
WHAT IS LYMPHEDEMA?
Lymph • edema (lim – fa – DEE – ma) is chronic swelling (edema) caused by a build up of fluid (lymph) that occurs when the lymphatic system is either faulty or damaged. There is no cure for lymphedema, but it can be effectively treated.
The recognized standard of care for lymphedema is Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT). CDT consists of four components: Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD), Skin Care, Compression Bandaging, and Therapeutic Exercise.
Together, we support, empower, and advocate for those impacted by lymphedema to promote optimal health.
(From the Mission Statement and Goals of the Alberta Lymphedema Association)
Our Certified Lymphedema Therapists have been specially and thoroughly trained in each component of CDT, including manual lymph drainage, compression therapy, skin care, and lymph drainage exercises.
We help clients manage swelling due to trauma, surgery, radiation therapy, or infection.
Lymphatic drainage packages are available as part of a maintenance program for overall lymphatic health. Contact the office at 561-768-9984 for details.
