Post Breast Cancer Physiotherapy
Treatment for breast cancer may include varying degrees of surgical intervention, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, all of which can affect the structure of the soft tissues around the whole of the chest, neck and arm.
Physiotherapy helps to reduce discomfort and restore posture, range of movement and strength, enabling patients to return normal activity levels.
Treatment is gentle, holistic and respectful of the trauma that has been placed on the body, both physically and mentally.
Conditions treated include:
- Scar tissue / Soft tissue tightening
- Axillary web syndrome or cording
- Shoulder pain, weakness & stiffness
- Neck pain
- Nerve pain
Types of treatment:
- Myofascial release and soft tissue massage
- Gentle passive stretching
