Complete Decongestive Therapy is considered the “gold standard” for the treatment of lymphedema. Pillars of treatment include:
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
- Compression Bandaging
- Skin care
- Patient education (in some approaches)
About Alaria, CLT
As a Licensed Massage Therapist, some pillars of CDT are outside of my scope of practice. While on that subject, billing insurance is also NOT something I am able to do with my Texas LMT.
As I’m putting infrastructure into place for more extensive treatment, I am currently available for more aspects of lymphedema treatment than before.
Even if you have Stage 0 lymphedema (you have no symptoms, but know that your lymphatic system has been impacted by surgery or radiation,) I may be able to help with your current baseline and for risk assessment, along with teaching you tools you can use for home treatment.
If you have more advanced stages of lymphedema, I’m here as a resource and will incorporate everything I’m able to within my scope of practice to support you in maintaining your condition.
