Complete Decongestive Therapy
For Lymphedema & post-operative care.
Complete decongestive therapy (CDT) is considered the best global treatment for lymphedema and impairments of the lymphatic system. It is a program that combines many different approaches, including manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), exercise, self-care, bandaging and compression garment fitting. MLD is a hands-on and extremely effective way to stimulate your body’s immune system, speed up healing time after surgery/injury, reduce swelling and improve range of motion of the joints…plus it can aid in the production of natural endorphins! MLD in combination with the other modalities of decongestive therapy stimulates healing and improves comfort, function and overall wellness.
