Breast Cancer Physiotherapy


Side Effects Of Cancer Can Lead to Long Term Damage

Fighting and conquering cancer is feat in itself. But another challenge begins in recovery.

Women who have underwent single or double mastectomies are at a high risk for musculoskeletal side effects. Loss of mobility in the upper extremity, chronic pain and lymphedema are some examples.

Exercise is a key part of symptom management; physiotherapy is key in prevention. The physical toll of cancer takes on the body is not to be understated. Physiotherapy can play a big role in the relief of pain, improvement of mobility, and lessening of fatigue. Fatigue can result from a variety of factors.

Physiotherapists take on the role of both caregiver and educator here. They prescribe exercise programs that can gradually increase strength and energy levels. Furthermore, they educate you on the importance of pacing your day.

Through gradual treatment, muscles are reconditioned to handle the stresses of everyday life.
