New York City’s Post-Mastectomy Therapy Professionals
As a part of our commitment to women’s health, we are devoted to working with patients who are status post mastectomy and breast reconstruction. Our goal is to return you to a functional, unrestricted, and pain-free range of motion in your upper quarter. For these patients, we apply various manual techniques, such as lymph drainage, myofascial release, and scar mobilization. We will also guide you through a progressive therapeutic exercise program to regain full shoulder range of motion, good muscle balance, and optimal posture. We include the whole patient in our evaluation and strive to return you to your previous level of function. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
Breast Reconstruction Therapy
Breast reconstruction therapy has the benefit of giving a full range of movement to post-mastectomy patients without them feeling pain or discomfort. We understand the trauma your body has experienced, and we’re sensitive to your need for normal movement without pain or anxiety. We’ll listen to you, diagnose any specific pain or discomfort you may be feeling, and offer options that will address these issues. You don’t have to live a limited life due to post-operation scarring. We can help you regain your vibrancy and confidence in a personal and caring atmosphere. We also offer quality pelvic care, TMJ and TMD treatments, and orthopedic therapies. We’ll listen to your needs and offer up reasonable options that will work with your lifestyle. We have over 30 years of experience helping women recover from their surgeries, and we’re here for you when you need us.
Regain Your Range of Movement
As with many surgeries, mastectomies can cause limited movement and ambulation due to scarring and post-operation pain. Many women find their abilities to enjoy physical activities, sports, and time out and about with friends severely limited by ongoing discomfort in their upper region. We offer effective physical therapies and exercises that will ease your distress and revitalize your ability to live an active lifestyle. We pride ourselves on our ability to treat each patient holistically and give you the highest level of care possible. Our team of physicians and therapists will custom create a program that addresses your unique challenges and abilities. Specialized patient care is our passion, and when you contact us, we’ll ensure you’re heard.
