After surgery for breast cancer, which involved removal of one breast and some lymph nodes, I developed a complication known as "Axillary Web Syndrome". It was a hardening in the tissue that left me unable to raise my arm very high. As I soon needed to raise my arm over my head for radiation treatments, this was a big problem. The Physiotherapists helped me regain full range of motion, and faster than my doctor predicted. I was also able to maintain the improved range of motion during and after radiation treatments (which also hardens tissue). The Physiotherapists are helpful, knowledgeable, and caring and have a great sense of humour. I highly recommend Panorama Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic.
