One-Day Face to Face WORKSHOP (from Level 1 workshop)

$240.91 excluding gst

Breast cancer survivors can present with a lack of full and easy arm range of movement, even after doing their arm and shoulder stretches.

Now, with additional training, health professionals can extend their care to patients after breast cancer, with or without lymphedema.

Treating the soft tissue impairments at the chest area, without causing micro-tearing, can result in immediate changes to the elasticity of the muscles and the viscosity around the scars and adhesions.

This training day offers a speedy introduction to the day to day skills and treatment planning I use to help my patients regain losses in quality and quantity of arm movement.

This is a face to face workshop taken from Level 1- where you get to experience the main assessments for common scars and adhesion after breast cancer:

  1. Reach -out- the- Back Test
  2. MAP- BC
  3. Pec MInor changes using negative pressure

Use these to test the effectiveness of three main treatment methods:

  1. PIR/ Contract relax for muscle bracing
  2. Levit Barrier Release for scars and adhesions
  3. Introduction  adapted cupping for ALND adhesions

These techniques can be added to your lymphedema service or can be the beginnings of a stand-alone upper body rehab treatment service.

DATE: Date to be advised. Connect with Denise Stewart to express interest

This will suit lymphoedema trained clinicians ( PTs OTs and nurses)  who are already providing lymphoedema services to breast cancer patients.
