Amanda Matton — Physiotherapist
I am a registered physiotherapist with post graduate training in cancer rehabilitation and lymphedema management. I am a certified lymphedema therapist (CLT-LANA) and PINC Cancer rehab therapist. My goal is to work alongside women with any diagnosis of cancer to assist them to get back to doing what they love.
Treatment is highly individualized and focuses on hands on therapy and exercise prescription following surgical intervention or radiation therapy, guidance for fatigue management while undergoing chemotherapy treatments, and complete decongestive therapy for the management of lymphedema.
Along with Andrea Edwards (PT), I facilitate the Strength After Breast Cancer 5-week re-introduction to strength based exercise training. This is geared towards small groups of women so that all exercises can be monitored an modified as needed, and is evidence based following the Physical Activity and Lymphedema (PAL) research study.
Bringing the most up to date treatment practices to Kamloops so that people don’t have to leave their own community is a passion of mine, and I look forward to collaborating with you to help you reach your health goals.
