According to the International Society of Lymphology Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT) also known as Decongestive Lymphatic Therapy (DLT) is the treatment of choice for Lymphoedema . Here CDT is combined with Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) correct breathing compression therapy skin-care and decongestive exercise. Initially CDT involves frequent visits to a certified therapist with a doctor’s/consultant’s prescription. Once the lymphoedema is reduced, patient participation is required for on-going care. The Therapist will teach SLD (Simple Lymph Drainage) and the patient will learn all about the use of elastic compression garments. In this maintenance phase visits to the therapist are less frequent but still essential to ensure the reduction of the oedema . CDT is generally effective. It is not a ‘cure’ but helps to manage the condition and prevents further complications.
