Réadaptation post cancer

Cancer Rehabilitation

Physiotherapists are involved in improving the lives of cancer patients and are there to help you maintain your strength, physical function and mobility, during and after cancer treatment.

The American Cancer Society recommends people undergoing cancer treatment, and cancer survivors, perform consistent physical exercise to decrease fatigue, and improve the ability to perform normal daily activities. Studies show that exercise can improve an individual’s chances of surviving cancer. Physical therapists can design individualized exercise and treatment programs to reduce or prevent many cancer-related problems.

Our physical therapist may apply hands-on techniques (manual therapy), modalities or teach you exercises to help decrease your pain, improve your function and alleviate your symptoms.

Some cancer treatments can result in lymphedema (swelling in the arms or legs) or other types of swelling. Your physical therapist can use several methods to reduce, control, and prevent lymphedema and swelling, such as specialized gentle massage, special movements and exercises, and application of compressive garments such as arm sleeves, gloves, and leg stockings.
