October is National Physical Therapy Month and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although many consumers might not think of physical therapy and breast cancer treatment being related, in this interview, a physical therapist describes why physical therapy is so important in a breast cancer treatment plan, not just eventually but early on. She also outlines the relationship between breast cancer and lymphedema and provides advice for those who might be at risk.
FirstHealth Physical Therapy
For any part of the body that ails you (neck, shoulder, back, knee), our physical therapists can help you ease the pain and improve your quality of life. If you are recovering from surgery, or if an injury has you down, a physical therapy program can help you move freely again, feeling renewed and ready to get back to things you enjoy.
Because physical therapists receive specialized education in a variety of sciences, they know how the body works. As they assess your individual condition, they develop a personalized plan of care to meet your needs and restore your function.
