Have you experienced PAIN OR MOBILITY issues in your chest or shoulder region FOLLOWING any type of BREAST CANCER SURGERY in the last 18 months?
If you answered YES you may be eligible to participate in a research study.
Researchers from the Center for Reducing Health Disparities in collaboration with The Gathering Place are currently recruiting participants for a study looking at the impact of massage on pain and mobility among women who have had breast cancer surgery in the last 18 months.
Eligible women will complete questionnaires and range of motion measurements throughout the project and receive one of two different types of manual therapy twice a week for two months by licensed massage therapists. Participants will be compensated for their time.
Women who had breast cancer surgery within the last 18 months and have experienced pain or mobility issues are encouraged to call MetroHealth study staff to see if they qualify for a research study. Contact Mary Jo Day for more information at 216-778-8456.
