Kelly Sturm, PT, DPT, OnCS, CLT-LANA, is a physical therapist who received her B.S. in movement science from Winona State University and earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from the Mayo Clinic. She became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) through Klose Training and is certified by the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA). In 2019, Kelly became one of the first board-certified oncology clinical specialists in the United States. She has taught in physical therapy programs and is a guest speaker at various conferences, programs, and community groups. Kelly has clinical expertise in the rehabilitation treatment of oncology diagnoses, primary and secondary lymphedema, and pelvic health. Kelly owns Cancer Rehab PT LLC, with engaging educational YouTube and Instagram platforms, bringing awareness and light to lymphedema, oncology rehabilitation, and physical therapy. After meeting many patients who lived in pain for years and assumed it was normal, she started creating content and sharing knowledge online to help those living with and beyond cancer and lymphedema learn how to manage and improve their symptoms. Her goal is to make education available to as many people as possible so more people would have the resources to realize that pain and discomfort are common, not normal, and feel empowered to start making small changes that lead to significant results.
