Join the movement! CDT in the context of rehabilitation can improve recovery times after surgery or trauma, heal chronic wounds faster, and reverse the disability associated with even the most severe presentations of lymphedema. We now know that all edema is on the lymphedema continuum and rehab is key! Don’t get trained in old techniques and paradigms. The Certified Lymphedema & Wound Therapist (CLWT) training course is the first of its kind, integrating edema, lymphedema, wound management and rehabilitation from day one. This course is for licensed PT/PTA/OT/COTA and other rehabilitation specialists who want to advance their practice. Medically focused on comprehensive patient management in the presence of multiple co-morbidities, this course prepares you to manage even the most complex patients.

NEW! Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapy is rapidly evolving. Time to practice Modern MLD!

Techniques have now emerged that are revolutionizing the way we practice. Modern paradigms are in some cases opposite of what we learned in the past, and we are building new approaches based on live lymphatic imaging. We have integrated Modern MLD into a rehabilitation model and are eager to share it with you. Don’t be left behind in clinical practice!

Everything is changing…Starling’s Law is no longer law, Endothelial Glycocalyx Layer is the gate-keeper of the microcirculation, no reabsorption of fluid in venules means all edema is on a lymphedema continuum, fluid in extremities can be drained to distal or adjacent, patent lymphotomes, pumping nodes on the involved extremity can improve outcomes, deep breathing doesn’t actually pump the Thoracic Duct, we can manually assess backflow see on NIRF imaging, without the imaging …….

Take the confusion out of understanding the new evidence and learn how to integrate this into your practice. Advance your practice and engage in stimulating discussions with your CLT colleagues! Register now! Limited Spots Available!
