Be the Best Version of Yourself

Don't let cancer degrade your quality of life

Why Physiotherapy for Cancer Rehabilitation?

Physical therapy can help patients recover some or all of their functional ability and live a better quality of life through and after cancer. Many patients who are undergoing treatment or have recovered still face physical difficulties such as problems with strength, endurance, flexibility, balance and coordination. Physiotherapy can help such patients manage pain, handle side effects from the treatments and improve their recovery time and reduce the risk of remission by prescribing exercises and lifestyle modification to cancer patients. Our program is designed for people who have undergone surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. It can help minimize long and short-term side effects and also prevent unnecessary disability.

Practice Areas

Pain Management

Physiotherapy can provide a wide arsenal of techniques and approaches to the management of pain in cancer patients, such as; TENS, Massage, Trigger point therapy etc.

Neuro oncology

Physiotherapy plays a key role in helping patients who suffer from cancer that affects their nervous system, such as brain or spinal cancers.

Lymphoedema Management

Certain cancers can cause Lymphoedema that is the swelling of the arms or legs (or other areas). Physiotherapy can help effectively minimise the impact of lymphoedema through specialized massage, exercises, application of compressive materials or garments etc.

Pre and Post Operative Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy can help patients recover their range of motion and flexibility after surgery. Surgical rehabilitation is critical for cancer patients and helps them avoid falling into an inactive or vegetative state.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy helps patients recover their quality of life by improving their functional mobility so that they can undertake their daily routine independently. The focus is on restoring function to joints and muscles and regaining lost muscle mass and bone density. Physical therapy also helps prevent fatigue and provide a degree of safety by preventing falls and other injuries.
