Allied Physical Therapy gains Certification in Lymphedema Therapy

Allied Physicians of Michiana is proud to announce that, Amy Conner, Occupational Therapist and Certified Hand Therapist at Allied Physical Therapy, gained her Lymphedema Therapy Certification!

Lymphedema refers to swelling most commonly occurring in the arms or legs. This intense, multi-part course trains therapists in the components of Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT). CDT is one of the most effective treatments for chronic extremity lymphedema. In addition, therapy patients are educated on appropriate skin care and physical activity. Patients will experience a sequence of intense therapy sessions supplemented by periodic follow up sessions.
