Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is a condition defined as an abnormal accumulation of protein rich fluid causing swelling. Lymphedema can occur in the legs, arms, head, neck, abdomen, or genitals. At Commonwealth Physical Therapy our clinicians have specialty certification as Certified Lymphedema Therapists trained and prepared to treat your swelling. Our treatment protocol follows the gold standard treatment guidelines known as Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT). CDT consists of compression, manual lymphatic drainage, skin care, and exercise. Call/Email us to inquire how we can help you manage your swelling.

The four components of Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT).  

Four components:

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

  • We utilize a very specific hands-on technique for lymphatic drainage performed by your therapist to promote movement of fluid to regions of the body unaffected by swelling, in order to assist with drainage of lymphatic fluid

Compression

  • Compression therapy is applied via multi-layer bandaging technique to further reinforce fluid decongestion, and prevent re-accumulation

  • We can measure for custom, and ready-made garments. As well as, assist with the ordering process through durable medical equipment providers, or cash pay vendors

Skin Care

  • Patients are educated in optimal skin care regimen to promote healthy skin and reduce risk for infection or wound development

Exercise

  • Each person is provided with exercise protocol tailored to their independence and tolerance level to assist with movement of fluid in the affected limb, and improve functional mobility
