Physiotherapy after breast cancer treatments
After breast cancer surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the delicate tissues of the breast and chest wall are changed. Physiotherapy is aimed at regaining painfree movement of the shoulder and chest.
Treatment can start as soon as you are able to get to the clinic, but may start years after the breast cancer treatment has finished.
The physiotherapy is gentle and respectful of what the tissues have been through. It is taken at your pace and involves applying careful tension to the breast and chest wall to ease the muscles and skin.
Frances, Merian and Alison are all specialised in this form of treatment. Frances spent 2 years travelling around the UK teaching other physiotherapists about the techniques.
