Ingrid Weddig, COTA/L, CLT, has been working in hand therapy since 2000. In 2010, she started a scar management and breast cancer rehabilitation program. She still enjoys treating multiple hand injuries, but her main focus now is with the breast cancer patients and lymphedema. Her program involves assisting breast cancer patients with proper scar management techniques, swelling, range of motion, and eventually strengthening. She is also a certified Lymphedema therapist and can assist measuring patients for proper upper and lower extremity compression garments. Her goal is to assist breast cancer and lymphedema patients in making a full recovery. Ingrid also has extensive knowledge and training in scar tissue. She has treated many difficult scars in multiple locations of the body including knees from total knee surgery, chest wall scars from transition surgery, abdominal scars from hernias, C-sections and ear scars from reconstruction. Ingrid enjoys learning new techniques and reading research articles in her areas of practice, time on her hobby farm, her teen kids, hiking, painting, and grilling.
