I have taken the 135 hours course about the treatment of lymphedema at Academy of Lymphatic Studies. The following information comes directly from the presentation slides dvd by Academy of Lymphatic Studies, with permission of Joachim Zuther, the founder of the school and author of DVD.
Stages of Lymphedema
This stage, also known as the reversible stage, is characterized by soft tissue pliability without any fibrotic changes.
Also known as Lymphostatic Elephantiasis
Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is a non-invasive, multi-component approach to effectively treat and manage lymphedema and related conditions.
