  Title Improving range of motion after breast cancer surgery
Journal JACA Online. 2012 May-Jun;49(3):Online access only p 12-15
Peer Review No
Publication Type Article

Pain and muscle tightness across the chest often follows a mastectomy, especially if lymph nodes have been removed. The result is chronic pain and loss of motion. Dr. Brian Nathanson works with these women at his practice in New England. He says the pain can be stabbing, burning, or aching and tender. It may be continuous or intermittent. It can be especially aggravated by moving the arm or trying to flex or rotate the shoulder, which makes an ordeal of the simplest actions, such as getting dressed.
