In episode 196, we are learning all about lymphedema, with Jenna P. Sturges, a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) and incredible SLP. Lymphedema is so prevalent in the Head and Neck Cancer (HNC) population, but many SLPs do not feel empowered or comfortable enough to identify and treat it. Jenna is here to show us that it is not just a PT thing. SLPs play a great role too!
In this week’s episode we’ll cover the prevalence of lymphedema, clinical indicators to look for in your patients, treatment options and modalities, and getting over the barriers that keep many SLPs from stepping into the lymphedema world!
