The Centre for Working Hands provides proven clinical treatments and enlightened integrative modalities for optimal healing after mastectomy, lumpectomy, and breast augmentation or reduction. We provide a unique healing environment for patients undergoing or recovering from breast cancer treatment.
Breast Healing and Recovery After Surgery
Mastectomy and other types of breast surgery impair function of the upper extremity. Weakness and muscle tightness, called disuse atrophy, develop when patients don’t use their arms during recovery from surgery. Medical research indicates that women significantly benefit from upper extremity rehabilitation after mastectomy or breast surgery.
At The Centre for Working Hands we help manage your pain, swelling, restores range of motion, strength and function, allowing patients to avoid upper extremity impairments. We specify breast exercise based on your treatment. We also give you the guidance and counseling you need to help recover from your treatment.
At The Centre for Working Hands, our therapists use their hands as tools that are instrumental in the healing of patients from all walks of life with injuries and diseases of all kinds. Through our knowledge of the human body and the human psyche, we are able to provide unparalleled rehabilitation services to any person in need.
