Lipedema: From Early Identification to Treatment for the CLT (LIVE)- $359, 16 CEUs

-August 6 & 7th, 2022- Christiansburg, Virginia

-September 24 & 25th, 2022- Cynthiana, Kentucky

Course Description:

In this course, participants will gain a clear understanding of lipedema as a specific and individualized condition that is highly treatable by the skilled therapist. The processes of identification and evaluation, differential diagnosis, type and stage assessment, specialized testing, and surgical and non surgical interventions are explored. Therapists trained in compression bandaging techniques and compression garment fitting will learn and practice various techniques and considerations while treating the lipedema limb. We will explore why traditional interventions have failed for the treatment of lipedema, and how those failed treatments contribute to the progression of this condition. The impact of this connective tissue disorder on an individual’s psychosocial wellbeing is explored, as well as supporting community resources to address these concerns. By the end of this course, students will be able to identify and determine/ administer appropriate treatment to the client with lipedema.
