Do No Harm Breast Cancer Rehab Guide

38-page PDF of precautions & contraindications for rehab providers

Product Summary

Don't think you treat breast cancer patients? Think again!

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Life expectancy is increasing & unfortunately so are cancer rates; this means rehab practitioners are more likely to treat these patients, but skimming over a past medical history of breast cancer would be a mistake.

Medical interventions for breast cancer often have long-term implications such as skin & tissue changes, increased risk for lymphedema, cardiotoxicity, osteopenia/porosis, fall risk, and cancer recurrence. You need to know if your treatment interventions such as manual therapy, exercise, and modalities are putting your patient and your license/practice at risk.

I created this affordable clinical reference guide for rehab practitioners. I understand that you might not want to invest in a continuing education course to get this information so I distilled down the 'need to know' information in this 38-page PDF. Just save it to your computer and reference at will.

If you have clinical questions, feel free to ask in the 'Pelvic Health & Breast Cancer Rehab Specialists' Facebook group. Thanks for going the necessary extra mile for your patients.
