Breast cancer rehabilitation is also a focus of treatment at Lymphatic Solutions. The aim of breast cancer rehabilitation is to assist individuals to regain functional capacity and range of motion to affected upper limbs via individualised exercise prescription and manual therapy, manage scar tissue following surgical procedures and radiation therapy, and provide psychosocial support.
Other forms of secondary and primary Lymphoedema, and Lipoedema also assessed, treated and managed.
For me the diagnosis of Lipoedema/Lymphedema left me with a feeling of helplessness, due to the somewhat unpredictable nature of the disease and limited treatment I was initially prescribed.
Kate is a compassionate practitioner, with a wealth of knowledge in lymphatic treatment, which she is more than willing to share and explore with you.
It has been absolutely amazing having a treatment plan created which not only fits in with me and my life style, but most importantly makes me feel like I have gained back some control, with results to prove it.
Thank you so much!
