Our mission is to educate patients and physicians on the benefits that our Practice can provide.
ShechterCare is a private facility devoted to providing rehabilitation therapy to patients who have had breast cancer surgery resulting in lymphedema, swelling, scar tissue formation and shoulder/chest range of motion issues. In addition, our therapists treat lower extremity swelling secondary to lymph node removal/damage due to cancer, radiation therapy, trauma and orthopedic swelling as well as primary lower extremity swelling and/or venous insufficiency. Our patients have unique needs and require special emotional as well as physical support. The experience we provide is very comforting and is unlike a regular orthopedic physical therapy setting where treatment is rendered for a wide variety of sports related conditions. Breast cancer and lymphedema patients find this exclusivity very reassuring as they interact with individuals that can understand their life experience.
