Physiotherapists can play a vital role in helping those diagnosed with cancer improve and maintain their best quality of life. Unfortunately, a cancer diagnosis may come with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and many other forms of treatment to help cure the disease or reduce its impact. These treatments can significantly impact someone’s physical ability to manage day-to day tasks, perform exercises and can reduce energy levels and affect the mental state.
The goal of cancer physiotherapy is to help our clients return to their best function after surgery using manual therapy and rehabilitation. You will be guided through exercises to help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and other treatments, manage fatigue and their side effects and help reverse the effects of deconditioning from being less active during cancer treatments.
We want to help you not only survive, but have the best quality of life in survivorship as there are many proven benefits to seeking a certified cancer rehabilitation physiotherapist.
