Inland Hospital Lymphedema Services

Inland Hospital Lymphedema Services began on January 30, 2013, as a service of the Inland RehabWorks Department. We provide caring, competent and compassionate care in an environment where you, the patient, come first. We will work with you to establish a plan of care that assists you in achieving your goals for optimal health.

To ensure the comfort and privacy of our patients all lymphedema care is provided in a quiet, private treatment room separate from the general rehabilitation gym.

Therapist Credentials Makes a Difference
An untrained therapist can truly do more harm than good when it comes to the evaluation and treatment of lymphedema and related conditions.  A Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) is a healthcare professional who has successfully completed a minimum of 135 hours of course work specific to the evaluation and treatment of lymphedema as well as both written and practical examinations. With documented experience and successful completion of an intensive written examination CLTs may also earn advanced credentials through the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA).  Many CLTs are also licensed Physical or Occupational Therapists.  These professionals bring an additional level of education and therapeutic insight to the treatment of lymphedema and related conditions. 

Inland Hospital’s Certified Lymphedema Therapist

Danielle Allain-Cowan, PT, CLT-LANA

Danielle is a 1996 graduate of the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine.  Building on her past experience in the specialty areas of wound healing and Women’s Health, in 2007 Danielle earned the credential of Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT), and in 2009 the advanced clinical designation from the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA).  Danielle is proud to be one of the few clinicians in the State of Maine to hold the CLT-LANA credential.

Danielle offers baseline assessment and education for individuals at risk for developing lymphedema.  Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) modalities are offered, as indicated by evaluation findings, for individuals diagnosed with lymphedema.  Treatment is also available for individuals experiencing soft tissue deficits (e.g., axillary cording, scar restrictions) resulting from oncological interventions.  To ensure a high level of skill and service, Danielle maintains a focused clinical practice providing outpatient care exclusively to this unique population.
