Lymphedema

Lymphedema is extra fluid that builds up in your tissue when your lymphatic system isn't working well.  This usually happens when your lymph nodes are damaged or removed.   Physical Therapists can help this condition.  Brittany Rickert is our Lymphedema Specialist. 

 

In 2017, Brittany became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) after receiving her course training through the Academy of Lymphatic Studies.  She has specialized in treating patients with edema-related impairments including those with lymphedema, venous insufficiency, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and many more.  She is able to provide a full decongestive therapy including compression bandaging, manual lymphatic drainage, exercise, and skin care education.
