ABC Lymphedema Clinic

ABC Lymphedema Clinic CDT is an intensive program that combines bandaging, compression garments, manual lymphatic drainage, exercise, and self care. Complete decongestive therapy (CDT), also called complex decongestive therapy, is an intensive program that combines many of the different treatment approaches including bandaging, compression garments, manual lymphatic drainage, exercise, and self care.

As a technique, CDT originated in Europe and Australia but is now becoming more prevalent in the United States. Many studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of CDT for improving lymphedema symptoms such as swelling and pain.

Replacing lymph nodes to ease painful legacy of cancer care

Breast cancer treatment left Susan Wolfe-Tank with an arm too painfully swollen to lift anything heavy or even fit into her usual clothing — a debilitating condition that gets little attention and has no cure.

The buoyancy effect water has on the musculoskeletal system makes movement more comfortable. Range of motion and flexibility are increased when in a warm water pool and the cardio vascular system is working more effectively, so an aerobic workout is possible. Additionally, the hydrostatic pressure acts like a “full-body garment” and helps to reduce edema, and stress is reduced when an individual with lymphedema is in the water.

Patients affected by #lymphedema can and should be active, and those who never exercised before should consider starting that daily walk, swim or spending twenty minutes on a stationary bicycle. The right type of physical activity helps to reduce the swelling by improving the flow of lymph, and presents a vital tool for patients to stay in shape and continue with normal activities of daily living.
