Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) consists of Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), short stretch compression bandaging, therapeutic exercises, skin care, patient education and lymphedema pumps only where indicated. Complete Decongestive Therapy effectively reduces swelling and helps return the tissues back to their normal size and function.
At Red Maple Physical Therapy, MLD is only performed by a CLT (Certified Lymphedema Therapist). We believe that hygiene & skin care are key components of our CDT approach to assist in managing skin and nail infections.
RMPT designs personalized decongestive exercises according to the patients’ needs and are recommended to be performed with low-stretch bandages & compression garments in place.
At our clinic, we provide you with specific instructions to reduce your risks and decrease the need for future medical attention.
Throughout your rehabilitation program, Red Maple Physical Therapy remains in contact with your physician, to promote an integrated service to you.
We are currently operating with one patient in the clinic at a time.
Masks are required to enter and a brief COVID 19 screen and temperature checks will be performed prior beginning of service.
