I am excited to bring the new technology of 3M Coban 2 bandaging to my Lymphedema clients. This technology is revolutionizing the current treatment for Lymphedema (Exciting!!!!)
Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) for Lymphedema achieves volume reduction through 2 main steps. The first being manual lymphatic drainage – a specialized massage technique where skin stretch techniques are applied to amplify flow through lymphatic chambers that are anchored in the skin. The second step involves application of compression via bandaging or a garment. Formally – the bandaging system commonly used was bulky, impeded mobility and as a result compliance with wearing it was low.
BUT – 3 M has developed new technology – the Coban 2 system! It is less bulky, less restrictive and research is showing that it also attains similar reductions in volume.
If you require treatment for Lymphedema – specifically for volume/limb reduction in order to fit into a garment contact Alicia Hagedorn, Registered Physiotherapist and Certified Lymphedema Therapist at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or contact our office at 416-423-1862 to book an appointment.
