Lymphedema

Prairie Rehabilitation provides treatment for lymphedema and edema management. Our staff has specialized training to treat patients experiencing an accumulation of fluid or swelling due to surgeries, injuries, and other conditions.

Lori Johnson, PT, CLT-LANA, is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) by the Academy of Lymphatic Studies, which was the first program in the nation and is recognized as the lymphedema healthcare leader. She is also a LANA certified lymphedema therapist. This is a nationally standardized certification through the Lymphology Association of North America.

Jason Rostomily, PTA – Jason has completed many hours of post-graduate treatment of Lymphedema.

Lymphedema is the accumulation of fluid or swelling in a body part, which may lead to serious complications. The largest portion of patients who will benefit from this treatment are people with post-surgical mastectomy, but treatment is also indicated for all types of lymphedema, chronic venous insufficiency, post-surgical or post-traumatic swelling, amputations, sports injuries, and migraine headaches.

Edema management is effective on most tissue swellings and includes a combination of skin care, manual lymph drainage, exercise, and bandaging. This non-invasive, painless and very effective therapy for lymphedema and other related conditions has been utilized in Europe successfully for decades and has now become widely recognized in the United States.

To make an appointment or to receive additional information regarding lymphedema treatment, please feel free to call (605) 334-5630. Lori is also available for brief presentations on lymphedema to interested groups.
