Cancer Rehabilitation and Lymphoedema Therapy
Undergoing and recovering from cancer treatment is a very challenging time.
Physiotherapy and exercise can help you to regain strength and mobility after cancer treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Research shows appropriate rehabilitation has many benefits including optimising physical function, improving energy levels, reducing the side effects of cancer treatments and easing pain and muscular tension.
Our certified Cancer Rehabilitation physiotherapist, Renee Wood has supported hundreds of women and men to regain strength and movement following cancer treatment. Renee is a specialist Lymphoedema Therapist and is a Certified Provider of the PINC Cancer Rehabilitation and Next Step programmes.
Renee will assess you individually and develop a specialised programme tailored for each stage in your recovery. Your sessions might include:
- Manual therapy
- Clinical Pilates and integration into group classes (including PINC Pilates)
- Fatigue management
- Scar management
- Home exercise programmes.
If you or a loved one are undergoing or recovering from cancer treatment, feel free to email Renee to find out how physiotherapy can help to regain your strength, mobility and sense of well being - firstname.lastname@example.org.
