Bridgetown Physical Therapy Begins New Rehabilitation Program for Cancer Survivors This December


Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) December 09, 2014

As of Dec. 1, Bridgetown Physical Therapy and Training Studio now offers cancer survivors a rehabilitation program for overcoming the physical barriers resulting from cancer treatment. Lead by Doctor Mark Hatfield, PT, DPT, the program helps survivors transition into a long term recovery and return to normal life activities.

As musculoskeletal experts, physical therapists are trained to identify dysfunction in the body and restore movement. Cancer survivors have unique physiological changes following cancer treatment that affects physical activity and movement. At Bridgetown Physical Therapy and Training Studio each client receives an individual plan of care with respect to their cancer treatment and medications. The program includes evidence-based exercises specifically for cancer survivors during and following cancer treatment. Additionally, it designs a long term home exercise plan.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) and American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) have developed physical activity guidelines for cancer survivors as a result from a growing body of research that shows multiple benefits of exercise. These benefits include improvements in survival rates, physical function, aerobic capacity, strength, flexibility, quality of life, and less fatigue. There is also consistent evidence that exercise is safe during and after cancer treatment.

“I believe our clinic is a perfect platform for this population,” said co-owner Mark Hatfield. “It provides specialized medical care in a clean and enjoyable private gym environment.”

John Marshall Law School Program to Focus on Best Ways to Seek Order of Protection Remedies for Domestic Violence Survivors

(PRWEB) October 31, 2014

The Illinois Domestic Violence Act provides protections and remedies to empower domestic violence survivors. But some key remedies have proven difficult to obtain and implement.

A Nov. 6 program at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago will present new developments and best practices in implementing five such remedies in civil court. They are: firearm relinquishment, payment of support (child and spousal), temporary legal custody, payment of various types of losses (including attorney’s fees), and counseling.

Attendees also will learn about recent domestic violence court initiatives to make all remedies available to survivors, how to make a record for appeal, and the results of recent appeals of cases where there has been an alleged improper denial of remedies. The program will feature legal and domestic violence experts including Sebastian T. Patti, Presiding Judge of the Domestic Violence Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, and Charles Stoops, director of the Center for Advancing Domestic Peace.

John Marshall’s Domestic Violence Clinical Advocacy Program supports survivors of domestic violence by (1) collaborating in “field placement clinics” where students, under the supervision of pro bono attorneys or John Marshall-partner legal assistance organizations, perform legal consultations and legal assistance using a trauma-informed and empowerment model; (2) developing educational and training programs for the general public, advocates, law students, and attorneys; (3) developing legal forms that enable survivors to exercise their rights under Illinois statutes to overcome barriers they face to becoming safe; and (4) crafting empirical-based policy proposals to improve the law’s response to domestic violence.
