Cancer and Physical Balance Workshop- South Portland

Chemo brain, loss of muscle mass, and neuropathy can negatively impact your physical balance after cancer treatment, increasing your risk of falls.

In this four-week workshop you’ll learn about basic anatomy and the three major body systems that allow you to balance. You’ll practice movements targeted at improving balance, and get handouts to practice the exercises at home. Attendance at all four workshops is encouraged.

This workshop is led by Sarah Burnham, Doctor of Physical Therapy from Maine Strong Balance Center in Scarborough. Sarah has a doctorate of physical therapy from Boston University. She began her career as an inpatient physical therapist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, MA where she gained experience working with various populations including neurological, oncological, geriatric, and orthopedic.
