Eleven years after breast cancer and radiation, the muscles in my back, under my arm and chest are very tight and spasmodic and my range of motion is inhibited. Is there anything I can do to release the tension in them or are they indeed fried as my massage therapist suggested.

    I did okay until I spent two years as a care giver and didn't take care of me. I hope it doesn't take two years to get it back. Thanks for assuring me it doesn't have to stay this way. egm
