Rehab after Cancer Treatment
Cancer treatment, including surgery and radiation, can result in fascial, joint, muscle and nerve restrictions. Gentle mobilization of the tissues can be significantly helpful in gaining range of motion and function back.
If edema or lymphedema is one of the symptoms that arise due to treatment, then manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a very successful technique (click here for more on lymphedema).
MLD is also very effective in relieving cancer pain in the palliative phase. This can be done with the clearance of your oncologist provider.
