Lymphedema Management Program in Lincoln

Horizon Physical Therapy is now offering Lymphedema Management Program. Our physical therapist, Tara Benes, was trained at the Academy of Lymphatic Studies in Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) of the limbs.

Lymphedema Treatments

Tara attended the University of Nebraska from 1994-1998 and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science. She graduated in 2002 with high distinction from the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Physical Therapy Program and completed her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy in 2005.

She has been a member of the American Physical Therapy Association as well as the Nebraska Physical Therapy Association. Tara has also been a member of the Can Do MS Medical Staff, a wellness program for individuals with multiple sclerosis, from 2002-2007. She has experience in outpatient orthopedics and neurology, pediatrics, and home care. Tara also specializes in Vestibular Disorders.

Lymphedema is a treatable medical condition that requires life-long management. CDT is the recognized standard of treatment for lymphedema and includes the following four components:

  • Manual Lymph Drainage
  • Compression Therapy
  • Decongestive Exercise
  • Skin Care

It is important to incorporate all four components of therapy in order to be successful in managing lymphedema. Treatment occurs in two phases: intensive (frequent visits to clinic) and improvement (independent management at home).

Please contact Horizon Physical Therapy if you would like to refer a patient in need of lymphedema management. Tara can help set up a plan of care best suited for the patient’s needs.

By Far The Best

I've been to a couple PTs in my life and Shane & his staff are by far the best. They are so caring & their therapies are very comprehensive. They educate & train you on the root of your issue, not just treat your ailments. I saw Shane for plantar fasciitis. He was able to relieve my pain & help me adjust the reason for my symptoms. I would highly suggest Horizon PT to anyone in Lincoln!

Friendly, Considerate, and Helpful Team

I was extremely please with the services provided by the pleasant and professional staff at Horizon Physical Therapy. I have received treatment from the team there for 9 months. Now, Thanks to the team's efforts and my home exercises, I am pain-free! The team is friendly, considerate, and helpful in terms of healing, teaching home exercises, and explaining all of the processes during treatments. Functional dry needling recently resolved my pain in a key area as well! I highly recommend Horizon Physical Therapy!
