How can having an MLD/CLT certification help me?

See powerful growth in your facility/practice with the application of lymphedema therapy. This is your chance to help people who often go without care and who are unaware that there are solutions to their chronic pain and/or swelling.

How can this certification benefit my patients?

As you will learn throughout these courses, learning MLD/CLT will give you the abilities to assist your patients in numerous ways.

  • Manual techniques for edema management, especially with post-op hip and knee patients, lead to considerable progress in motion and strength goals.  It is a huge advantage to the patient to have their pain and edema reduced.
  • Edema reduction brings with it an increased range of motion and therefore increased ability to meet functional goals and daily activities.
  • Demonstrate functional outcomes more quickly to your referring physicians.
  • Patients are able to see results and are willing to come to therapy even on days when pain and malaise would inhibit them from participating in more aggressive therapies.
  • The holistic needs of your patients will be met when they are assisted in detoxification for optimum health or when relief is provided from the symptoms of auto-immune conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and more.

How does being a lymphedema therapist apply to oncology?

  • There is a growing need for methods that provide relief for the long-term side effects of cancer treatment.
  • Certified Lymphedema Therapists apply techniques that help oncology patients tolerate and recover from these side effects.

What are some benefits for practitioners in rehab facilities?

  • Assist in your facility’s wound-management program by addressing edema in limbs that keep chronic wounds from healing.
  • Through our lymphedema certification programs, Monarch Continuing Education can help you provide quality care while increasing your RUGs levels and Part B utilization.
  • Assist patients in meeting their gait and balance goals by evacuating even small amounts of fluid in their ankles that can prevent full dorsiflexion and keep the patient retropulsive, leading to frequent falls.
  • Treat venous insufficiency quickly and effectively in all your Part B populations, using manual lymph drainage and proper bandaging techniques.

Lymphedema programs are a growing segment of patient care. Research and trends are changing and expanding every year, particularly in the field of oncology.
