How is lymphoedema treated?
There are a number of possible treatments for lymphoedema, many of which can be used together. International best practice guidelines recommend complete decongestive therapy (CDT) to manage and treat lymphoedema. Lymphoedema is a chronic condition (i.e. it cannot be fully cured), and is progressive (i.e. it worsens) if not treated.
Only basic information is provided here – please consult your lymphoedema specialist (a specially trained professional nurse, occupational therapist or physiotherapist, etc. ) for additional information.
