New staffers join Olympic Medical Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

Physical therapists Nora Heaton and Lydia Rogers along with occupational therapist Angela Byars recently joined Olympic Medical Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation.

Heaton earned a doctorate in physical therapy from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and specializes in pelvic pain and rehabilitation, and bowel/bladder control.

Rogers completed a doctorate of physical therapy at Oakland University in Michigan and applies manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercise, kinesio-taping techniques, functional-task assessments and pain management techniques in her practice.

Byars earned a Bachelors of Science degree in occupational therapy from San Jose State University and a certification in the Leduc Method of lymphedema therapy. Lymphedema — also called lymphatic obstruction — is swelling that generally occurs in a person’s arms or legs, but also can occur in other areas of the body. It is most commonly caused by the removal of or damage to a person’s lymph nodes as part of cancer treatment.

“We are thrilled to welcome these new therapists to our community and Olympic Medical,” Gloria Andrus, operations manager at Olympic Medical Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, said. “Their skills will expand our lymphedema service to both our Port Angeles and Sequim offices, our Women’s Health program in Port Angeles and our Community Wellness program in Sequim, respectively.”

For more information about physical, occupational and rehabilitative therapy services offered by Olympic Medical, call 582-2601 in Sequim or 417-7728 in Port Angeles, or visit www.OlympicMedical.org.
