Unlimited Performance Physical Therapists Continue Education
December 17, 2009
Recently, Melissa Stevens and Ela Storleski, physical therapists at Unlimited Performance Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine, Sycamore, attended a seminar entitled Updates on Strategies for Lymphedema Management at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The physical therapists benefited from the course by learning how to have greater care in the management of patients with lyphedema.
The multidisciplinary course focused on “clinical issues affecting the musculoskeletal health of individuals suffering from lymphedema. Lymphedema is a known complication of many cancer treatments, and may impair function, range of motion, strength, and quality of life. Idiopathic lymphedema may occur in the arms or legs, and although rare, can cause significant disability and impairment.”
The professionals at Unlimited Performance continually strive to improve their knowledge and skills in order to better serve the needs of their patients. Unlimited Performance Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine is located at
