Breast care - Therapy services
The Women’s Health physiotherapy team also treat patients undergoing treatment for breast cancer. This includes men and women who have undergone mastectomies, lymph node surgeries, wide local excision with lymph node surgery, and breast reconstructive surgeries following a breast cancer diagnosis. We can see patients pre-operatively, on the ward or at out-patient appointments post-operatively. We advise about exercise regimes and arm care to try to prevent problems post-operatively, and can provide treatments for cording, soft tissue and scar restrictions and post-operative shoulder problems.
