Abstract

This exploratory study used a hermeneutic phenomenological approach. Six physiotherapists from different healthcare contexts were interviewed face-to-face, using in-depth techniques about their lived experiences of treating upper limb movement impairment (ULMI) due to breast cancer treatment. The data was analysed using the Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis method. Three major themes were identified, which represent the shared, higher-order meanings of the physiotherapists' experiences of treating ULMI.
