Strength After Cancer!

I work with women who are healing and rehabbing after having cancer.  Often, there is a loss of motion, weakness, and pain associated with the scar tissue or with the protective and compensatory behaviors that are so common in a life-changing problem like cancer.  Physical therapy can help with many of the problems by using hands-on techniques, specific exercises, and functional training (how to do all of your daily activities with less strain) to restore your physical well-being.  And of course, this helps with the confidence, the resolve, and the faith that everything can be okay again.  Maybe even better than before.

There is a new program, called Strength After Cancer, developed by two women with a passion for helping woman thrive after cancer.  They are using specific exercises and nutritional techniques that significantly helped one of the founding members, when she herself was recovering from breast cancer.
