Lymphedema is a build-up of protein-rich fluid, typically in the arms or legs, that leads to inflammation and swelling. Lymphedema is typically the result of surgery, trauma, cancer, venous insufficiency, and can be hereditary.
A Certified Lymphedema Therapist has undergone over 135 hours of training specific to lymphedema, focused on complete decongestive therapy, which includes manual lymph draining, multi-layer compression bandaging and garment fitting for upper extremities, lower extremities and head/neck, as well as providing appropriate exercises and skin care. CLT's are trained to treat patients over the lifespan, from children to adults, and empower patients with the tools they need to manage their lymphedema on their own after discharge from services.
