Our Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) provides Complete Decongestive Therapy for the treatment of lymphedema. We treat lymphedema related to cancer treatments (radiation, surgery) to include upper extremity, lower extremity, head and neck, trunk and breast. Also, due to the high need for lymphedema therapists in the NoVa region, our CLT also treats lymphedema from other causes. Our treatment approach includes:
- Manual lymph drainage
- Compression bandaging
- Garment fitting
- Kinesiotaping for lymphatic flow
- Patient and caregiver education
- Patient and caregiver training in self treatment to enable long term, independent management of the condition.
Our CLT is experienced in compression garment fitting and can fit for custom or off the shelf garments for upper and lower extremities, trunk, breast and neck.
