Complete Decongestive Therapy: This is considered the gold standard for lymphedema treatment. Lymphedema is swelling that occurs when lymph fluid can’t flow normally and builds up in a part of the body, often in the arm or leg either due to a genetic condition or damage to lymph nodes. Complete Decongestive Therapy is a combination of manual lymph drainage (massage), compression bandaging and garments, skin care, and exercises. These therapies are managed by a trained therapist. The therapist gives many treatments over a short time to help clear most of the swelling, then you can continue the program at home to keep the swelling down. Learn more.
