Bathurst physiotherapist receives specialized training

Maude Gagnon, a physiotherapist from the Chaleur Regional Hospital in Bathurst, NB, recently received a $500 community health grant to attend a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Course. Since receiving this specialized training, she has begun seeing patients for intensive decongestive combined therapy (lymphatic drainage and compression).

Lymphedema in breast cancer patients and survivors causes swelling in the arm – sometimes causing the arm to nearly double in size. With her new training, Maude has been able to help her patients' significantly​ reduce swelling in their arm in as little as two weeks, as a result of this new training.

In Maude’s words, “I feel like I’m making a difference in someone’s life.  It feels good!”
