Lymphedema requires patients to commit to their wellbeing full time, but when the process becomes too difficult, self-care routines tend to fall away. This puts patients at risk of exacerbation, infection, and more. Over time, other health issues arise until suddenly they need assistance with maintaining their routines.
Not every therapist wants to be certified in Complete Decongestive Therapy, but every health care provider needs to know the basics, when and how to help, and when to refer out. In this recording, you’ll learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of lymphedema and explore complete decongestive therapy treatment plans, including assessment, massage, skin care, compression, exercise, and patient education.
