Breast Cancer Rehabilitation
Breast cancer rehabilitation aims to manage symptoms that occur following chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery; such as pain/discomfort, oedema, loss of range of movement, neuropathy and scar complications.
Lymphoedema Therapy is the management of abnormal swelling in a limb or other part of the body (e.g. abdomen, chest, face). Treatment for lymphoedema is known as Complete Decongestive Therapy. This includes an evaluation of the swollen limb/body part, identifying potential causes of the swelling, manual lymph drainage (MLD), the use of compression bandages and garments, skin care and home exercises.
