Medical treatments for breast cancer can often leave patients with significant scarring, adhesions, fibrous tissue, hard and lumpy breasts, rippled or contracted breast implants, and cording. This webinar with Breast Care Osteopath, Amanda Hannaford, will explore how osteopathy is well placed to help fill the significant gap in their post-treatment care.
She will discuss her own experience working as part of her patient's MD teams (including Oncology Breast Surgeons, Radiation Oncologists, Medical Oncologists and McGrath Breast Care Nurses) and how more osteos can be accepted into this area of care.
Amanda Hannaford is an experienced osteopath who works exclusively with breast cancer patients. She currently practices as part of the interdisciplinary team at the Northern Beaches Breast Clinic and is the founder and director of Restore Health & Wellnss in St Leonards, Sydney. She also joined the Mater Hospital’s Centre For Wellbeing in 2022.
Amanda’s patients are referred by Oncology Breast Surgeons, Radiation Oncologists, Medical Oncologists and McGrath Breast Care Nurses. She is enthusiastic about the future of osteopathy in this field and has developed her After Breast Cancer CPD course to encourage other osteopaths to feel comfortable to care for these patients in their own practices.
Amanda has been practicing in Sydney for 20 years and has been an osteopathic university lecturer and a registration board examiner.
