Breast Cancer Recovery-Share the Knowledge: Movement

September 20, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

ABCD is proud to co-host this event!

When someone is undergoing cancer treatment, physical therapy may not be the first healthcare field that comes to mind. Early cancer treatment is with oncologists, radiologists, nurses and surgeons. Rightly so, as these healthcare practitioners are essential to the treatment and management of cancer.  But, is that enough?  Physical therapy can help restore the rest.

Cancer rehabilitation is a growing area in medicine due to the increase in cancer survivorship and advances in medical technology, treatment and early detection.  Common physical impairments across all cancers include strength loss, range of motion loss, scar tissue, muscle tightness, pain, and more.

About our Speaker:
