Frances Elmer-James is a highly experienced general musculoskeletal physiotherapist with a special interest in rehabilitation post treatment for breast cancer.
The shoulder issues that may arise following cancer treatment, in particular cording, fibrosis and neural tension, all of which result in decreased mobility and discomfort, are generally easy to treat and can often be helped with only a small number of treatments. Long term shoulder issues following cancer treatment can be avoided if dealt with early.
Frances has been closely involved in the education of physiotherapists at the Royal Hobart Hospital and Hobart Community Heath Centres, assisting in developing a treatment pathway to aid optimal and swift return to normal function following breast cancer treatment.
Frances offers timely intervention in a quiet, friendly and relaxed environment, away from the clinical hustle of a hospital setting.
