COMPLETE DECONGESTIVE THERAPY
Complete Decongestive Therapy (CTD):
CDT is a technique used to manage chronic swelling, most commonly lymphedema, lipedema and chronic venous insufficiency. It involves 4 different focusses.
- Manual lymphatic drainage which establishes a pathway for the fluid to move.
- Compression helps to move the fluid away from swollen areas and discourages the movement of this fluid back to affected areas.
- Exercise maximizes the effectiveness of your own lymphatic system to pump that fluid through your body.
- Skin and nail care ensures the most external organ system is in optimal shape so that you are less likely to develop infections.
