CDT = MLD therapy + compression 

 

CDT is very effective with chronic conditions and in trauma recovery

 









The goal of CDT (combined decongestive therapy) is to quickly reduce swelling and stabilize tissues so the swelling will not return. It's a comprehensive process, usually involving 2 to 4 weeks of concentrated therapy, depending on the disease or injury. For those managing a chronic swelling condition, a compression garment is often fitted after the swelling is reduced/stabilized.


CDT works for your:

  • Chronic swelling disease - Including lymphedema and lipedema
  • Post-cancer treatment swelling - Lymphedema often results from breast and other cancer treatments that involve lymph nodes
  • Severe to moderate swelling - Acute (from injury or surgery) or chronic (from disease or a lingering issue)
  • Large-scale injury or trauma - Most often from reconstructive surgery or an injury
  • Recovery following major surgeries​ - Including reconstructive, elective, cosmetic, and emergency situations
