In our women’s health program we evaluate the woman’s health across her lifespan, and evaluate the role it plays in her current health status. We also determine what we can do to promote her health and wellness immediately and in the future. The following diagnoses are treated in our women’s health program:
Breast Cancer: Neck, shoulder, thoracic spine, or low back pain, muscle weakness, or loss of motion following lumpectomy, mastectomy or breast reconstruction surgery.
