The picture above shows tips on how to manage your lymphedema and things to avoid. It is important to see your physician and/or a certified lymphedema therapist to discuss your symptoms. The certified lymphedema therapist can then develop a plan of care and recommendations on how to manage your symptoms. The gold standard for lymphedema treatment is complete decongestive therapy (CDT). This includes manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), compression, therapeutic exercises and education on self-care and skin care.
