Connective Tissue Courses: An integrated approach – understanding our connective tissue “Its role in the management of Complaints after Breast Cancer Treatment”

Our course goal will be to share with you how normal day-to-day function is changed by interference with the fascial and connective tissue anatomy. By understanding how various systems interlink to determine function, we can explore new and integrated treatment strategies as a tool to relieve the post surgical and radiotherapy trauma following breast surgery including reconstruction. Participants will develop skills for evaluating and treating of individual patients using an integrated approach.

The evaluations from previous courses have demonstrated the need to extend the course to three days. This is to ensure that all aspects can be covered satisfactorily, including anatomy, pathology and practical sessions.
This workshop will be an intense mix of theory and practical work, and the number of participants will therefore be limited. Suitable for Physiotherapists / Therapists working with breast cancer patients, e.g. Oncology / Women’s Health, Primary Care and Musculoskeletal settings.
