Course Description

Breast Cancer Awareness Is Not Just a Month, it is EVERYDAY. With millions newly diagnosed each year, emphasis is placed on detection and treatment. Little emphasis is placed on the effects of prolonged stress, fatigue, pain, uncertainty and permanent changes to the body. We are AMAZING, and we can adapt through every battle, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t questions…

· “What am I supposed to expect after breast cancer treatment?"

· “Will I always be at risk for lymphedema, and what is it anyway?”

· “What can I do to reduce my risk of having breast cancer return?”

· “Will a specific kind of physical or occupational therapist be better able to treat me after breast cancer?”

· “How do I get back the range of motion and strength into my arm?”

When you enroll in this course, you will be granted immediate knowledge and receive incredible benefits, helping you

· Build your knowledge about what lymphedema is and how it can be managed

· Develop a plan of action to help you reduce the risk of lymphedema after breast cancer surgery

· Save hundreds, if not thousands, of hours searching the internet for frequent symptoms or concerns

· Boost your energy, look and feel healthier, as you confidently complete a short stretching and exercise routine, based on research

· Maximize your knowledge with FAQ video segments, complied from my years as a treating physical therapist

· Own life-time access to resources, compression charts and exercise logs

This course was designed and organized as though you were having a private session with me. I am a board-certified physical therapist, board-certified wound specialist, certified lymphedema therapist and have taken hundreds of hours of continuing education. I have over 5,000 hours direct 1:1 treatment time in this specialty area over the course of my PT career, beginning in 2006. I have been honored to work along side women who are navigating their way through the treatment, or post-treatment.
