Did you know over half of those treated for breast cancer can experience long-term upper extremity impairments? (source)

Those who have had the following are more likely to experience upper extremity impairments.

· a mastectomy

· axillary lymph node dissection

· radiation

· chemotherapy

· reconstructive surgery

Pain, weakness, lymphedema, fibrosis, and limitations in shoulder range of motion can affect your quality of life. These problems may present immediately, while others may occur over time, even months after you have finished treatment.

During our next Straight Talk: Ask An Expert session, we will discuss how chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue therapy can help to restore movement, function, and relieve musculoskeletal pain to survivors who have gone through reconstructive surgery, radiation, and chemo. Our guest expert, Dr. Katie Briley, DC from Performance Chiropractic, will answer YOUR questions LIVE.

Note: This LIVE Video Webcast will be broadcast exclusively on our private Pink'd Survivors Unite Facebook page. Are you a survivor and have not yet joined Pink'd Survivors Unite?
