Workforce Development in Action
Earlier this month, 14 Tabitha therapists participated in a 32-hour lymphedema training course and received their certification thanks to a Collaborative effort between Tabitha’s Workforce Development and Foundation teams.
Lymphedema is a long-term condition where excess fluid collects in tissues causing swelling (edema). It commonly affects one of the arms or legs, or both, and can sometimes cause swelling in other areas such as the head or chest. There are a number of possible causes including cancer surgery and radiation therapy, infections, injury, inflammatory conditions, trauma and cardiovascular diseases. Although it’s incurable, with the right treatment it can be controlled.
These techniques and skills will greatly improve Tabitha’s rehabilitation therapy quality, especially for clients with cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and congestive heart failure. Alongside treatment, the therapists will also be able to teach clients massage techniques they can do at home to help reduce inflammation and pain.
Pictured above, lymphedema specialist and practicing therapist, Ann Elise Kryszak, OTR, CLT, instructs Tabitha TEAMembers on proper treatment techniques.
