THE MLD CLINIC TREATMENT PLAN

 

Therapy begins with your needs and health goals


We work with you, your GP or specialist, and any other health care providers that are helping you manage and improve your health. The MLD Clinic's treatment plan follows these milestones for care:


Assess

  • You have an initial assessment appointment with Terry Kemp
  • Your health status, goals and expectations are discussed
  • A written medical history and physical examination is completed
  • Your first appointment includes an assessment, followed by an initial therapy session


Plan

  • Based on your assessment, Terry advises you on a course of treatment
  • You and Terry review the plan to agree on your course of treatment
  • A treatment note is often forwarded to your GP or specialist 
  • Insurance coverage options are confirmed


Therapy

  • Your first visit includes both the initial assessment and a MLD therapy session
  • MLD therapy sessions are usually 60 or 90 minutes long
  • The number of sessions needed is based on the assessment and plan
  • Therapy services may include MLD, CDT and compression garments


Maintenance Appointments

  • In cases of severe edema and chronic conditions, on-going MLD therapy supports lymphatic system function and continued reductions in swelling and pain
  • Monthly or quarterly recall appointments are typical for certain patients
