Nicole is a physical therapist who specializes in cancer rehabilitation. She has done an incredible amount of work in the area of lymphedema and working to improve this area of cancer care.
We chat about what lymphedema is, recognizing signs and symptoms, and common exercises used to treat it. We also talk about Nicole’s work using a prospective surveillance model or rehabilitation, screening for and treating issues as they arise. This progressive model can drastically reduce the physical and financial burden of rehab for patients, getting back to full health quicker.
